This is just plain wrong. Buck is derived from old English. It means stag. If you speak an other Germanic language, you probably have a similar word in it. (Ie Norwegian has Bukk, which means stag as well.)

the reason somone uses the term buck for a dollar is because they once used deer skin for currency. They are not saying that they made the goddamn word.
