I can't find the name in my books. But if you go by the sound, you get to Bocksleitner. Now BOCK is a ram, and Leitner may refer to a shepard (not very likely) or to a word meaning "slope of a hill". There are also several place-names Leit(h)en in Bavaria and Austria, so LEITNER may be taken from there.
There are also place-names starting with BUCHS-, which can go back to "Buchs" (box-tree; from Greek byxos).
Hope this helped more than it caused additional confusion.
