Buck is the name of the quarter of the village in the southern black forest I grew up in. Actually it’s not a real quarter, because it’s only an accumulation of five to six houses on a hill at the edge of the village surrounded by woods. Buck, pronounced [buk] in german, is an old slangword, an idiom of the area for hill. But nowadays nobody uses it anymore nor even knows its meaning. I also didn't know its meaning for a long time. I always liked the sound of the word. It has this onomatopoetic quality to me, it could have a certain meaning by its sound, but it didn't have one or more precisely I didn't know. I used to fill it with a specific content and imagined what content the word could carry.
