Etymology[edit]

Kanji in this term
おぎ
Jinmeiyō
kun’yomi

From Old Japanese. Found in the Man'yōshū, completed some time after 759 CE.[1]

Ultimate derivation unknown. One theory suggests that it might be the 連用形 (ren'yōkei, continuative or stem form) of classical verb 招く (ancient reading woku, modern rendering oku, to invite, to beckon someone closer, also found in some texts with the ancient reading wogu), from the way the grass waves in the wind.

Pronunciation[edit]
