Japanese names and their meaning! o (◡‿◡✿)

Av shin-chan - 28 april 2012 19:18


People often ask what a Japanese name means. This is not an easy question to answer, as they are not as simple as English names. Japanese names are usually written in kanji. Each kanji character has its own meaning. When parents name a baby, they chose kanji characters for it. Since there are thousands of kanji to choose from, even the same name can be written with many different kanji combinations. Depending on which characters are used, the meaning of the name differs. Therefore it is hard to know what characters are used for a name and what the meaning of a name is just by its pronunciation.

For example, "Keiko" is quite a common name for a female baby, but there are more than 70 kanji variations. Click here to see some of the common kanji combinations used for "Keiko."

Another example is the popular baby girl's name, "Ai." The most common choice for the kanji character for "Ai" would be the character for "love." The variety of characters available for "Ai" is not as diverse as those used for "Keiko", but there are still several different ways to write "Ai", such as using the character for "indigo blue." Click here to see some of the examples.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Japanese names and their meaning:                                                          Asa — "Healer, morning" Boy

Chika — "Near" Girl
