Etymology[edit]

From Old Japanese, of unknown derivation; some theories include:

  1.  () (mu, six) +  () (ka, "ten" or meaningless ateji, see 五十嵐) +  () (te, hand), literally "sixty hands"; centipedes have more or less than one hundred legs, or
  2. ももがて (momo ga te):  (もも) (momo, hundred) + (ga, historical possessive) +  () (te, hand), litereally "hundred hands" (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

The kanji, from Chinese 百足, are jukujikun (熟字訓).
