“Buddha” is an uninflected form of the word. If you were speaking Pāli and wanted to name the Buddha, you’d probably use the nominative declension, “Buddho.” That’s probably why it is inherited in that form, and it’s probably why a lot of dharma names have the nominative declension at the end, like “Sujāto” and “Amāro” and “Sumedho” and “Dhammanando.” I could be wrong. That just seems like the reasonable answer to me.
