In this Japanese name, the family name is Tachibana.

Tachibana Ginchiyo (立花 誾千代?, September 23, 1569 – November 30, 1602) was head of the Japanese Tachibana clan during the Sengoku Period. She was the daughter of Tachibana Dōsetsu, a powerful retainer of the Ōtomo clan (which were rivals of the Shimazu clan at the time). Because Dosetsu had no sons, he requested that Ginchiyo be made family head after his death. About five years later, Ginchiyo was married to Tachibana Muneshige, who carried on Dōsetsu's family line.
