Depends on the mother, if she was Japanese then sure. But I like naming after constellations.


A friend of mine named her son Orion but she pronounces it the Spanish way

I came to love the names Kairi and Roxas from Kingdom Hearts. I'd name by kids after them.

I knew a counselor who's name is Yuri, she's hispanic too. I wish I had asked why her parents given her that name!

But yeah, I personally wouldn't use a Japanese name because I can't honestly say that it's not coming from a weeb reason.


Your counselor being named Yuri might have nothing to do with it being a Japanese name. Yuri can be short for Yuridia and the name Yuri itself is used by a lot of Hispanics. There's a mexican singer/tv hostess named Yuri btw.
ohhh, I had no idea. Thank you for telling me. You learn something new everyday

Defiantly naming my kids with japanese names. There are so many beautiful and awesome japanese names.

I actually think that's a good name for a girl regardless of where they were born.

Personally, I favor "Old World" European names, like "Liam," "Rowan," "Eileen," and "Sybyl." Biggest factor is the prospective last name, to me. I aim to construct a full name that flows well together. There are a few Japanese names that I'm fond of, but I've read one too many historical romances set in the UK.

I've thought about this sort of thing in the past. It seems frowned upon to name a child something from another culture but I have seen names from a lot of different cultures and thought they looked cool. If it floats your boat than why not?

Rather than where the name comes from, I'd consider how it sounds with your surname.There are combos that can sound really bad.

But you know, nothing wrong with unsual name (or more precisely name from other country/culture) as long as it is a human sounding name. As a holder of a name tha is almost non-existant in the country I live in, I can say it feels good and brings no trouble, apart from having to spell it for people sometimes.

Can't say I like people naming their kids something like Blue Star Of Hope I Like Coffee or something like Xulhulthruxx. When that happens, someone should get bullied. Like the parents for example.

i don't want to have a child in the first place, but if I did, I wouldn't name the kid something obviously japanese unless they were related to someone of japanese ancestry. i just don't see the point. things like "erika" and "risa" perhaps would pass, but forget most other japanese names.

You gave this child life, you can name him/her whichever you like.

The name isn't really the problem. You can name a kid whatever you want. However, when naming a child, people should take into account what the name can do to the kid if it is weird and different. If you think it can open up a way for extra bullying that would not be there otherwise, I would probably refrain from naming your child something different. Children can be more vicious than adults, and it could end up with your child gaining an extreme hatred of their own name in the long run and quite possibly anxiety and depression. So you just have to be careful.


Yeah this is bullshit. I have a name where there were 2-3 other people with my same name in like every class but people still found a way. Name them something that sounds good and fuck bullies because they will always find a way.
