The name bunting, in the 14th century, meant a plump or thick set person and originally referred to the corn bunting. Buntings are a group of Eurasian and African passerine birds of the family Emberizidae. They are seed-eating birds with stubby, conical bills. The buntings of Europe, Asia and Africa are related to American sparrows. They are rather finch-like.
