EtymologyEdit

/angoː/ → /ankoː/

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 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.
