Different Names for a Pirate
This be the name for pirates who sailed the Barbary Coast, which be in North Africa. Here they’d catch many a ship (especially the British ones), then they’d go off and sell all the fit sailors they caught as slaves.
These tough men lived on Caribbean Islands (around 1600 - 1700s), catching all kinda wild animals, that they then cooked to eat or sell. The barbecue they cooked on be called a ‘boucanier', which could well be where the name ‘buccaneer’ came from.
Although these men spent most of their time on the islands when they’d be bored (or if they were hired to) they’d board their own ships, set sail and live the life of a pirate.
Mediterranean pirates be called ‘Corsairs’ because the word be French for ‘chaser’, and... well... pirates do do lots of chasing.
This be Dutch for pirate, probably because ‘freebooter’ be Dutch for ‘a person who wanders wherever they want to while looking for something to steal.’
Simply Spanish for ‘pirate’.
