What's New

  • 05/16/2024

    There are kanji characters that are legally permissible for naming but carry negative meanings. On the kanji list, I have greyed out these characters. Additionally, you can refer to the list of inauspicious kanji for further reference.

  • 05/09/2024

    On the page listing characters usable for naming, links to the relevant laws and the Ministry of Justice’s character list page have been included.

  • 04/23/2024

    I’ve added examples of nicknames for each first name on their respective detail pages. For example, for the name Rika, nicknames like Rikachan, Rikko, are added.
    Each nickname also includes an audio pronunciation, so enjoy the unique names!

  • 04/06/2024

    I added an “Add to Favorites” button to each name on the Japanese Names Generator page. Additionally, I changed the appearance of the button slightly.

  • 03/28/2024

    I’ve implemented a Name Filter in the Japanese Name Generator, which allows you to filter through the displayed names. You can also specify multiple strings separated by spaces for a more refined search. Please give it a try!

  • 03/25/2024

    On the Japanese Name Generator page, I’ve added notations for the first name and last name for each name. I’ve also made some layout adjustments. Enjoy creating your new Japanese name!

  • 03/13/2024

    On the Japanese Name Generator page, I’ve added Romanized versions to the reading of Kanji names. This should make it easier for people who are unfamiliar with Hiragana to read the names.

  • 02/24/2024

    I have added the Kanji combination ‘是空‘ for the first name Zekuu.

  • 02/19/2024

    The My Name in Japanese page now allows for conversion not only to Katakana names but also to Hiragana and Kanji names!

Love for Ukraine

Supporting Ukraine Kids together

As the situation in Ukraine escalates, I feel with emotions too overwhelming to name. There are many children in Ukraine whose homes have been destroyed and without food and water. Gentle support is needed.

Please donate to Save the Children.

According to Google Analytics, Japanese Names.info has been visited from 217 countries and regions for 30 days. Of course, Ukrainian and Russian users are also included.

For the kind Russian people

Apparently this isn't broadcast on Russian TV, but what the Russian government is doing isn't actually a peacekeeping operation, but is more correctly described as an invasion and looting of your relative's country, Ukraine.

The only power that can change the reality in Ukraine is for the Russian people to speak out. Please touch the world media outside of Russia to see how your government is causing the tragic situation. Thank you for a peaceful world!
