I'm almost certain the etymology listed here is merely a folk-etymology. Chinese and Japanese are both rife with them. --—This comment was unsigned.
- You're referring to the "bank teller's cage" etymology? It doesn't sound very plausible. Is it possible it comes from 冂 + 丄? 184.108.40.206 08:26, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Mandarin and KoreanEdit
Why aren't Mandarin and Korean readings listed? They are given at the Unihan database. 18.104.22.168 00:26, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Use in Korean NamesEdit
According to the official list of Hanja acceptable in names 円 is an acceptable character, read as 엔 (en), different from the reading of 圓 which is 원 (won). I don't know of any examples of anyone actually using 円 in a Hanja name but this should probably be mentioned. I could add it if no one else does. 2602:30A:2CDB:490:C929:F7C6:7343:3F1D 03:59, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
