It is doubtless onomatopoeia, and shows up in a version of the story about a woman ghost who buys candy for a child each night. What does it represent?

オギャー or オンギャー is a baby's crying sound, especially a sound at the moment when a baby was born. We are relieved when we hear the sound at the moment because the baby was born healthy.
オギャー is used more than オンギャー. Here in here you can find the equivalent sound in English as "waa or waaah".

  • @naruto: そのようにします。ところで過去形was bornで良いのでしょうか。迷っています。
