Proto-Turkic: *buka
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: perch
Russian meaning: окунь
Tatar: ala-boɣa
Khakassian: ala-buɣa
Kazakh: ala-buɣa
Comments: VEWT 15, Лексика 178 (traditionally regarded as a compound *āla 'variegated' + *buka 'bull', which is dubious because of the parallelism in Tat.: ala-balɨq 'crucian' : ala-boɣa 'perch' - suggesting that the second part of both compounds is originally a fish name).
