Etymology[edit]

Attested in the Kojiki (712 CE).

The irregular kanji spellings are a combination of ateji (当て字) and jukujikun (熟字訓).

The name of the deity would likely mean the "son of the god come from heaven, born before the hut at the water's edge had been completely thatched with cormorant feathers".[1]
