Word Origin for buckwheat
1540s, from Middle Dutch boecweite "beech wheat" (cf. Danish boghvede, Swedish bovete, German Buchweizen), so called from resemblance between grains and seed of beech trees. Possibly a native formation on the same model as the Dutch word, from a dialectal form of beech. See beech + wheat.
