Reading your post, I have found that I genuinely dislike the idea of giving an American-born child a name of Eastern origin. I feel a sting of regret knowing this. However, if this was my spouse's desire, I would likely be able to accept it, however I can't help but feel my child would be teased and bullied because of it. A name like Takashi in an American school would likely become the subject of abuse. At least, that is my belief.

Yea, I hope to give my daughter the name Nagisa, from Clannad, I love the anime a lot, and the name Nagisa sounds nice, so i hope to do so, unless my future wife calls me crazy and decides to name her something plain.

Yeah I probably would, but that would only be if I didn't already give him a really unique name like I plan my kids to have.

I couldn't pronounce it, so I'm going to pass on this one.

The funny thing about this, is that I was just thinking about this. I would most definitely want to give my child a Japanese name (I'm actually part Japanese.)

Not unless the child's other parent was Japanese, or at least had some Japanese heritage. Otherwise it would feel like 'borrowing' someone else's culture, which is terrible for a lot of reasons that I'd rather not get into a discussion about on this site.

Maybe. A pretty Japanese name would be farrrrrrrrrrr better than these dumb ass new generation names all these people have been using lately. Especially celebrity kid names.

What's with all these people wanting to give their kids "unique" names anyway? Just give your kid a normal fucking name. He/she has to go to high school with that name.

I guess Nasshingu, which means nothing, as I highly doubt I ever reproduce.

Note: it's a loanword.

I think I wouldn't do that. As was said before: Kid has got to go to Highschool with that name.

Maybe, I've always been partial to the name Yuki, and has been something I've always considered if I had a girl. However, if I had a boy, I'd go with Liam, so I hope I have both with a Russian chick so our family could be all kinds of weird.

Plus, anyone who says that a kid would get beat up over a name is stretching it. I mean, would YOU hate someone just for their name? And remember, we do have a young child in the world named Dovahkin, so yeah, try topping that kind of stupidity.
