Word Origin and History for louie bouché
bouche
Fr., lit. "mouth" (O.Fr. boche, 11c.), from L. bucca, lit. "cheek," which in L.L. replaced os (see oral) as the word for "mouth" (cf. It. bocca, Sp. boca). Borrowed in English in various senses, e.g. "king's allowance of food for his retinue" (mid-15c.); "mouth" (1580s); "metal plug for a cannon's vent" (1862; verb in this sense from 1781).
