goku isnt common. but theres one thing i dont understand. why is it that most japanese words and names have a vowel as the last letter? and the ones that dont have an unnesisary vowel sound at the end. ex: light-o-kun from death note. no offense meant.

in response to the above post -
have you noticed that all japanese words, when they are romanized, end in an english vowel? the only time they don't is when it ends in "n", which is the only consonant in japanese. basically, the japanese alphabet is made up of vowel sounds. using your example, "light" is pronounced "lai-to" = "light-o".

and everyone's been providing lots of good examples of common japanese names, but even the same-sounding name can have a different meaning depending on which characters are chosen to represent the sounds. example: "shinji" would probably be broken up into the characters "shin" and "ji" - but the characters for "new", "truth", "root", etc, are all pronounced "shin". so, the meaning of his name would change depending on what characters his parents chose.
