unknown language: Piz Buin

NZ - English
Hello everyone.

Some of you may have heard of this brand but I was wondering if it meant anything in any language; at first I thought Spanish, but it may very well be German. In fact, that is what I think it is. Nevertheless, I was curious as to what it might mean in English (if it has any meaning at all)....?

Thank you.

    Piz in Rumantsch has the same origin as peak in English.

    I don't know if it is only for mountains with a pointed top, but that is the meaning of French "pic".
