Have always liked the name 優也-Yuuya.

Supposedly it means carefree, perpetual so thats cool...

(For the record, I got the Japanese text from Wikipedia so it might be wrong)

In a last name first name format:
-Akihana Suzume
-Kokuma Kei (Kei's actually part of my real name) or
-Kaze Midori (I was almost named Midori since my mom liked the ice skater Ito Midori.)

I'm not sure about my last name, but my first name would be either Hikari or Sora, because I always loved those names

I like to think it would be Rock Lee. That's right, I chose a last name too.

I like the name Shiori.
A direct translation of my name would leave me as Hime, which is kind of lame. (; - ; )

Haven't thought about a name if I were to actually pick one myself, but the closest name-like name I could think of from my actual name's meaning would be: 黄山 - read as Shuuya - literally meaning yellow mountain. It's not exactly the same meaning, but it's close enough.

Even getting it to be read as Shuuya would need a very unusual reading of the kanji though.

Oriru or 降りる

So I took my birth name and found the origin, which turns out is Gaelic for "blood river". Whammed the two words into google translate and got Ketsueki Kawa (血液 川). Flip 'em round and I guess I'd be Kawa Ketsueki (川 血液). I don't know though because that's only my forename, not my surname.

And I guess you could take it a step further and shorten Ketsueki to Ketsu (欠) which means missing. So then would my name be significant to going missing in a river of blood? Aspirational names are terrifying.

But then there's the fact it'd be Ketsu Kawa, or "missing river". Shit, that's a level of geographical magic I don't even want to approach right now.

This requires too much thinking that I've never done before D:

Well, my name's origins means "silent observer" which I chucked into Google Translate... And I think I did something incorrectly.

Because I'm fairly certain that's not a name, but what do I know?
