Etymology[edit]

/angoː/ → /ankoː/ invalid IPA characters (g/→/), replace g with ɡ

Unknown.

Various theories of the origin of あんこう (ankō) exist, such as from あんぐり (anguri) or あぐり (aguri, agape, with one's mouth wide open),[1][2] perhaps related to Korean 아귀 (agwi, anglerfish). The kanji spelling is an Edo-period coinage, found for example in the 1709 biology text 大和本草 (Yamato Honzō, “Japanese Biology”), formed from earlier ateji (当て字) 安康 (ankō) by adding the (fish) radical to each of the ateji characters. The current 鮟鱇 form has replaced the earlier 安康 form.
