Let's think up some entertainingly spurious derivations for common words 
and phrases.

Barbecue - From "Bar Becu", Jewish surname, mentioned in an apocryphal fragment

"And in those days there was drought, and great famine in the land. And 
Joseph Bar Becu went to the Temple of the LORD, and there he made burnt 
offerings, so that the LORD might send rain upon the earth."
