Buck Rarebit

Here is a little food porn post, just for the sake of it. When my parents came to visit, I made them discover the Welsh rarebit, the classic British comfort food that I love so much and that I often crave these days. If they ever had prejudice against food on this part of the world, they don't have it anymore. But anyway, it struck me that what I truly prefer is the variant of the recipe that adds an egg on top of it, called a buck rarebit (and which I blogged about here). For practical and greedy reasons: the egg adds some extra proteins, for one, but also it gives the rarebit far more flavour, especially with a warm runny yolk. So the buck rarebit is now my dish of predilection when I want to order a quick lunch in a restaurant or a café.

Why is it called a "buck" rarebit? Does the name refer to a "buck" rabbit, i.e. a male rabbit? Or does it cost a buck extra, LOL? (unlikely, given your different monetary system, I know, but I couldn't resist.)
