||In Polish Bućko, In Cyrillic бучко? by AnneBeeche
According to Hoffman's Polish Surnames: Origins and Meanings, Bućko can come from either buk 'beech tree' or buczeć 'to hum, drone, buzz'. He gives the cognate forms Buc, Buca, Bucki, Bucoń and Buczacki but doesn't explain the origin of the palatalized . On this basis, you can probably legitimately keep your pen name but you could also change it to Bee if you prefer.
