Boy Names of Japanese language or origin

Japanese names for baby boys, with 890 entries. As with many East Asian languages such as Korean and Chinese, each Japanese word character possesses its own meaning. Combining characters thus forms a myriad of phrases that bear layers of symbolism and significance, very much like the Japanese culture itself. Reflecting a poetic quality, Japanese baby names embody the Japanese way of life reflected in artistic forms such as tea drinking or in traditional thought such as the samurai Bushido code.
