Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [1]

Bugean . A descriptive epithet applied to Haman in Ad. Est 12:6 RV [Note: Revised Version.] (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] has ‘Agagite’). Bougaios occurs in Homer ( Il . xiii. 824, Od . xviii. 79) as a term of reproach = ‘bully’ or ‘braggart.’ Whether the Sept. intended it in this sense, or as a gentilic adjective, is wholly uncertain.
