While this isn't true for every anime, some tend to give fake names that would never actually be used to name actual Japanese children. As an example, a well known one is Sakura Haruno which is really just a sentence, Haru no Sakura which mean sakura of the spring. And my friend taught me that many names in DBZ are actually references to vegetables and food like Gohan means rice. So no I wouldn't name my child after anime

Although I love anime I doubt I would give my child an anime name. Maybe as a middle name but I don't think I would give my child an anime first name lol

I would, why not? Most anime names are nicer and more reasonable than some of the shit people come up with these days.

Finding a woman who will allow such a thing is the hard part! I got to name my son's middle name but my ex basically had two choices that she would allow for his first name that would be "cool" enough.

I would only do it with names from my favorite anime that are actually common in English. For example, if I had a boy, I would name him Edward, Alphonse or Simon, from Fullmetal Alchemist and Gurren Lagann. If I have a girl, I would name her Nia, from Gurren Lagann as well.

And I have plenty of more options from video games as well.

Hm.. I always did like the name "Isara" for a girl, from Valkyria Chronicles. Originally a game, but I think there's an anime for it as well.

Only if it's a realistic sounding name.

If you're not japanese or don't have a japanese husband/wife, don't give your kid a japanese name. You make yourself and your kid look dumb. Its like giving your kid an African name when you're white.
