Choosing the Perfect Japanese Name for Your Baby

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, though some names are written in hiragana or even katakana, a style that's more typically used for words of non-Japanese origin.

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 a popular name for a female baby. ("Ko", meaning child, is often used at the end of female names.) Despite the seeming simplicity of the name, there are more than 70 different ways to write "Keiko" in kanji; you can see some of the most popular variations here.

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."

How to Inspire Your Baby Name Choice

  • From an image: Use an image from nature, natural phenomenon, four seasons, color, arts, jewel and so on. Or select one or two kanji characters (ocean, star, spring etc.) to be used in a name as key words.
  • From a wish: One or two kanji characters (courage, happiness, wisdom, success, beauty etc.) are used in a name to represent what you wish or hope the baby's defining characteristics will be.
  • From kanji characters: Choose the kanji characters you want to use, then create the name. There are quite a few kanji characters that are popular for names, such as dai (big) and ta (great) for boys and, mi (beauty)" and yuu (gentle) for girls.
  • For a relative: When parents wish to name a child after one of their first names or relative's name, they use one of the kanji characters from that person's name instead of giving them exactly the same name.
    • From a sound: Decide on a name from a sound, and then choose the kanji characters for it.
    • As a memorial: Name the baby after a historical person, hero/heroine of a novel, celebrity etc.
