Etymology[edit]

The components of “buz” in the area names of Shahbuz, Buzqov in the territory of Nakhchivan comes from “bus” tribes, one of the tribes of the Medes. "Buz", "bus" as well as "bos" is "boz oğ" (gray arrow) which is considered a main branch of Oghuz Turks. Yet in the first centuries of millenium and early middle ages, the name of Turkic tribes which settled in Nakhchivan as Turkesh, Pechenegs, Kangars, Az, Ahura, Shada, Yaychi, Karabakhlar, Garachug, Gyzylja and other tribes are reflected in geographical names of Nakhchivan which a part of them are encountered in epos of the "Book of Dede Korkut".[2]
