Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
The father of Ezekiel (Ezek 1:3). It is unclear whether he was associated somehow with the Arabian land of Buz, as his name might suggest. Ezekiel was a priest and therefore was a descendant of Levi, not a foreigner.

BUZI. The father of Ezekiel (Ezk. 1:3). The Jewish tradition that he was Jeremiah must be firmly rejected, being based on an unwarranted supposition and fanciful etymology. He was a priest, probably a Zadokite and most likely of a more important priestly family, since his son was carried into captivity
