The French name Bucey has a history dating as far back as the Middle Ages. This history is intrinsically entwined with that region known as Normandy, for it was derived from when the Bucey family lived in Normandy, at Bussy-Le-Grand.

The surname Bucey was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where the family held a family seat from ancient times.

Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Bucey, including Bussy, Bussie, Bussies, le Bussy, de Bussy, Bussi, Boussy, Boussie, Boussies, Boussi, de Boussi, Bousset, Boussey, de Boussey, Boucey, de Boucey, Bousser, Bussey, Busser, Bucy, Bushee and many more.
