From Japanese 銀杏, from Chinese 銀杏 (yínxìng) "silver apricot". The same characters as in Chinese are used in Japanese, where they appear as though they could be read ginkyō. Ginkgo is the name that is printed in Amoenitatum exoticarum politico-physico-medicarum Fasciculi V [...] (1712) authored by Engelbert Kaempfer, the first Westerner to see the species. This was read by Carl Linnaeus, and the misspelling stuck.
