Baby names of Japanese Origin
Japanese names are the names used in Japan. The names listed here are in Latin alphabet. In Japan they are written in Kanji, the adopted Chinese characters, hiragana, katakana, and the Hindu–Arabic numeral system. Many Japanese names have several different writings of two or even three kanji characters, with different meanings according to the actual kanji character used. Also many different kanji baby names may share the same pronunciation, and that makes it difficult to write the name if it is pronounced different. That’s why Japanese use Hiragana where the characters stand for syllables, or even in the Latin alphabet.
