There is a village Rushock in Worcestershire and a Rushock in Herefordshire. According to Tolkien, the name is derived from the plant rush. David Salo, but also Hammond and Scull, suggested an etymology from Old English *Ryscuc/rixuc meaning "rushy place, rush-bed". However Tolkien alternatively suggested a possible compound with hassock "coarse grass".
