Bascot comes from basc, "Basque", and the ending -ot (Occitan, Catalan and French), which is not diminutive but augmentative and in some cases despective; it is a hypochoristical suffixe, but an augmentative one and not diminutive, as could be -ic.

In origin, Bascot was a surname for someone from the Basque country.
