EtymologyEdit

Kanji in this term
なずな
Hyōgaiji
kun'yomi

/nad͡zuna/ > /nazuna/

Unclear. There are two leading theories, based on older form nadzuna:

  • May be derived from natsu na, as in (natsu, summer) + (na, missing, gone), from the way the plant dies back in the summer.
  • May be derived from nadzuru na, as in 撫づる (nadzuru, to pet, to pat, to stroke, the 連体形 (rentaikei, attributive form) of Old Japanese verb 撫づ nadzu, modern Japanese 撫でる naderu) + (na, edible greens), from the way the flower clusters may invite handling.
