Favorite Japanese name? 8 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
Well, seeing as we've all watched a ton of anime by now, we've been exposed to a lot of Japanese names. Do you have any Japanese names that you like? Whether it be a male or female name, first or last, doesn't matter.

Mine is actually a name I created for a sess/kag fanfiction I am writing. It is Takara, and it literally translates to Treasure.

My friend actually used this name as one of her character's in a fanfiction from a while ago. Arashi. It literally translates to 'Storm' which is extra awesome for me since that's my name, and also the name of a Japanese band/group, I think.

My favorite's actually change all the time, or at least the female one does. My current favorite for a female is 'Anju' (so cute!), and my favorite male name will ALWAYS be 'Kenshin.' ^_^ (Though 'Kaname' sounds pretty enough to be a close second.)

For male names, I really like Daisuke, Kenichi, Kenta and Shin. Ryuuji's quite awesome & strong name, too.

For female names, I really like Kyouko, Misaki, Sayuri and Shiori. Though, my most favourite Japanese name will always be Chie. x3

I really love the name 'Eiko'. I first heard it in Final Fantasy 9. Later on, I found out I had a family member that married into the family with that name. Sadly, she changed her name afterwards, because she wanted no more to do with her heritage. One of the reasons I love it so much is because it isn't used often. I'm not sure why though.

My favorite female Japanese name is Shiori, and I like this name so much that most likely if I were to have a daughter than I would name her Shiori! Another female one that I like is Rin.
Than my favorite male Japanese name is SESSHOUMARU! Some other male ones that I like is Koga, Kiba, Shippo, and Ryoga. Ryoga is what I named my dog!

O.O I like the names of some of my fav anime chars.

Motoko is probably my fav name from anime (Ghost in the Shell). I like 'Momo' meaning Peach, and probably Ren, Rei, and Rika for a girl, along with Anju, and Aika.

Sesshoumaru probably for Mr. Fluffster, and Miroku to for the quickest fingers of the Feudal Era, our favourite pervy Monk.

Re:Favorite Japanese name? 8 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 1
Mine are from fanfiction as well as original work.

This depends upon the kanji used for their names, which are many

Female: Suishoukaze (crystal wind) named as Sesshoumaru's first daughter. Akagi Inari (Crimson Skill of the Fox Harvest God). And Kirie (Misty Bay).

Male: Inuakamori (Dog who gaurds the red forest) Ren Shirokuro (Lotus of Innocence and Guilt) and Kyoya Shirokuro (Strong Night, Black and White)

Re:Favorite Japanese name? 8 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 9
I I guess the very first japanese name I heard was the name of a canadian francophone singer called Mitsu - I only realized much much MUCH later that it was Japanese.

Haru has been one of my favorit Japanese boy name, it was also the second japanese name I heard (but I can't remember from which manga/anime I heard it from).

The third japanese name I heard was from Escaflowne Hitomi -- as funny as it as it might seems, just like the first Japaness name I heard, at the time it didn't sound that japanese to me - go figure! hehe ^_^ --

But my favorite female japanese name is Yori
