The buntings are relatively peripheral in West Malaysia/Singapore. Some authorities give them the ornithological name Burung Cakar 'scratcher bird' (onomatopoeic), which is the same as that given to the finches (Fringillidae), with which they were at one time classified together. Alternatively, they are known as Burung Pipit 'sparrow (bird)', based on the sparrows (Passeridae).

シマアオジ
(縞青鵐 ~ 縞蒿雀 ~ 島青鵐 ~ 島蒿雀)
shima ao-ji
'striped blue/green bunting₁' or 'island blue/green bunting₁'

The word シマ shima is written either 縞 'striped' or 島 'island'. Both are pronounced shima. The first might refer to the striated pattern in the bird's plumage; the second might apply to a restricted or island distribution. It's not clear which is meant in this name.

The ji in アオジ ao-ji, クロジ kuro-ji, and ノジコ no-jiko are etymologically related, although the ultimate etymology is not clear.
ji and ジコ jiko may both be written 鵐, a character devised to write the old name シトド shitodo 'bunting'. The name アオジ ao-ji as a whole may be written 蒿雀 or 蒿鵐, where 蒿 yomogi means 'mugwort' (Artemisia) and the second character refers to 'bunting' and 'sparrow' respectively. 蒿 refers to the greenish colour of the bird.
ノジコ no-jiko may also be written 野路子 'field road child' or 野地子 'field earth child'. The last two characters in each have been arbitrarily chosen for their sound.

นกจาบปีกอ่อน nók càap-pìik-òaan 'soft-winged-weaverbird (bird)' is used in Thai as the equivalent both to English 'finch' (Fringillidae) and to English 'bunting' (Emberizidae). In Thai these kinds of birds were not traditionally distinguished from each other, and they were considered kinds of จาบ càap 'weaver' (Ploceidae).
