Frequently Asked Questions

Below are FAQs in relation to Japanese boys names.

What is names that means ‘Twilight’?

Kawatare, similar in meaning to the word tasogare, is written with the kanji characters that mean “who is he” or “who is that person” ( ).

It refers to the twilight, when it is not yet dark but it is difficult to see the faces of even your traveling companions clearly.

What Japanese names have the word “Yuzu” in them?

The yuzu is called yuja in Korean cuisine. Both Japanese yuzu and Korean yuja are borrowings of the kanji/hanja yòuzi , though this Chinese word now refers to the pomelo due to semantic shift.

What names in Japanese mean or reference wolves?

Ichirou one+wolf. Kagerou shadow+wolf. Yoshiro goodness+wolf.

Why are you using a Japanese name?

Because both of my parents were Japanese nationals and reasonably gave me a Japanese name when I was born. It’s the only name I can officially pass by with, so I just use it.

In Japan do Japanese people have English names?

In general, the answer is no. But there may be a few rare exceptions. Multicultural families often strive to select a name that may be used in Japan and also abroad.

Is there a Japanese surname that mean ‘promise’?

There is not the word promise yakusoku but another meaning of promise, Oath chikai meaning, a solemn pledge (to oneself or to another or to a deity) to do something or to behave in a certain manner.

How is a half-Korean and half-Japanese child given a name?

They will usually take the name of the father/head of household for official purposes. Some Koreans in Japan also opt to use their Korean name informally as well as their Japanese name.

How to find the closest English equivalent of a Japanese name?

You can’t. English names are a class of words in English that are considered not to have meanings. A small number, mostly girls’ names, are common nouns repurposed as personal names.

(Names of jewels or flowers, etc.) But those are very much the exceptions. Many English names had literal meanings in the language they were borrowed from.

But those were lost or ignored when the name was imported into English. Names can have associations: who else has had the name? But that is not the same.

Why do the Japanese add ‘San’ to every name?

“San,” “kun,” and “chan” are added to the ends of names and occupation titles to convey varying degrees of intimacy and respect in the Japanese language.

They are used very often and it is considered impolite if you use the terms incorrectly.

What determines if someone’s name is written in Katakana?

If a person of Japanese descent is born and raised overseas, it seems common for official Japanese publications to use katakana for their name as if they were completely non-Japanese.

This seems to hold even if the person has kanji for their name, even if they write their name in kanji themselves.

We hope this article has been of help to you in choosing a unique japanese boy names for your new born son. Please share this article with your family and friends. Cheers.
