Uncertain.

  • Probably from (ni shin, two + parent, as in father and mother), due to the large number of herring offsprings.
  • Can also be from (ni shibu, boil(ed dish) + bitter).
  • From (ni shin, two + body), from the way it is prepared before cooking.
  • It can also be from a clipping of 西 (nishi no umi no uo, literally, "fish of the west seas").
