The onion, also known as the bulb onion or common onion, is used as a vegetable and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium.

The adjective of onion refers to the Japanese metaphoric idiom of poverty, aptly named the "Onion Life", "peeling away one layer at a time and crying all the way". Alternatively, the term could come from the slang phrase "to know one's onions", meaning to be very versatile.

The Japanese name オニオレット (Onioretto, lit. Oniolet), is a portmanteau of オニオン (Onion) and ガントレット (Gantoretto, lit. Gauntlet).
