ku(reru)
meaning: give, Wu China

呉越同舟 == goetsudoushuu == (noun) bitter enemies (placed by fate) in the same boat
呉服屋 == gofukuya ==  (noun) draper, dry goods store


Current meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests taking this character as 'six' (六), a 'corner', and the top radical as a 'box', and as a mnemonic: 'Given a Chinese box with six corners.'
