    From Old Japanese, from Proto-Japonic *yananki. Cognate with Kunigami (やなーじ, yanāji), Miyako (やなぎぃ, yanagzï), Okinawan (やなじ, yanaji).

    The ultimate derivation is unclear, with several theories presented in reference works. Some of the main theories:

    First cited to roughly 759 C.E., in the Man'yōshū collection of poetry.[1]

    Pronunciation[edit]

    Noun[edit]

    (やなぎ) (yanagi

    1. [circa 759] a willow
    2. [999] a style of 襲の色目 (kasane no irome, color combination by layering of garments), with white on the front and greenish-blue (or yellowish-green) on the back
    3. Short for 柳色 (yanagi-iro): a dark yellow-green color, as from a willow leaf
    Usage notes[edit]
    • As with many terms that name organisms, this term is often spelled in katakana, especially in biological contexts, as ヤナギ.
    • In some compounds, yanagi becomes yagi; possibly due to shortening, sound shift, or direct compound of (ya) +‎ (ki) without the na element.
