Bill, I know of three cases where the term "Buckeye" shows up.

1) The case you mentioned, the Buckeye tree, produces a shiny nut that is polished by believers as a good luck charm.

2) The Common Buckeye is the name of a colorful butterfly, several of which seem to be passing through my area this year, which I am happy to photograph.

3) The Ohio State football team is known as the "Buckeyes", and has been, at least back to the days of Woody Hayes and his "3 yards and a cloud of dust" style of power football.

I see no real commonality among the three.

My late wife's family came from Joplin, about as far SW as you can get in Missouri.

I'm confused. You are referring to a certain butterfly as a Buckeye. My former 
in laws, who live in SW Missouri, the part where you hear banjos, have some 
kind of nut that they call a Buckeye, and it considered to be a good luck charm.

So what's what?

The Common Buckeye is being seen more frequently around here this

summer. Does this bode well for Ohio State football?
Does OSU football need boding?
