Japanese baby names

Japan is one of the most developed nations in Asia. It does not have only a long and enchanting history, but it also has a collection of unique and beautiful names.

In modern times, Japanese baby names usually consist of a family name i.e. surname, followed by a given name. Japanese baby names are generally written in kanji (characters usually Chinese in origin but Japanese in pronunciation). Japanese surnames are extremely varied but the three most common used surnames or family names in Japan are Satō, Suzuki, and Takahashi. Some of the Japanese baby names also reflect the birth order, for example Taro which mean 'the first-born male'. The meaning of the Japanese name is quite complex because one Japanese name can have several meanings. Another important factor to note is that, in Japan a baby is assigned an informal name after six days of his birth. The baby is given formal name when he/she turns 16 by arranging a proper naming ceremony.
