Origin of burgeon
From Middle English burjon, burioun (“shoot, bud”), from Anglo-Norman burjun, burgeon, burgon (compare Old French burjon "a bud"), from Old Frankish *burjo (“sprout, offshoot, descendant”), from Proto-Germanic *burjô (“sprout, descendant, offshoot”), from Proto-Germanic *beraną (“to carry, bear”), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰer-, *bʰrē- (“to bear”). Akin to Old High German burjan (“to push up, raise”), Old English byrian (“to come up, occur”), Old English byre (“child, son, descendant”). More at bear.
