Japanese Names

For parents who like to get creative and think outside the box, Japanese baby names are a great place to start. Japanese names are usually written in kanji, which are characters of Chinese origin in Japanese pronunciation, may have a variety of possible Japanese pronunciations. Following this trait, one Japanese name can have dozens of meanings, as well. We have done our best to detangle the mystery in our collection of Japanese names, and have included many traditional and modern Japanese names. Our name detail pages include gender and pronunciation, meaning, popularity info, notable namesakes and pop culture references about each name. Check out our selection of fine Japanese baby names.
