The Hoopoe is known in Mongolian by a number of variant names, including two almost parallel sets:

The Buryat version of the second name is Бүбөөлжэн bübööljen.

There is also the name Данан бялзуухай danaŋ byalzuukhai, meaning 'danaŋ finch' (where бялзуухай byalzuukhai is a general name for small birds). The Hoopoe also appears to have been known by the name Ит it, which is more commonly used for the jays.

The 2007 Ornithological names combine two of the commonest names into the double-barrelled Бөвөөлжин өвөөлж bövööljiŋ övöölj.
