Japanse namen

Een mens leert alle dagen bij:

Japanese female names often have “ko” in them (Keiko, Miko, etc.), which means “child.” Boy’s names, on the other hand, often reflect their status in the family. If a boy is the oldest son, he’ll often have a name that indicates this, by having the number one in it, like Ichiro or Hajime (which means “to begin”). The second son in a family will often have a name like Koji or Kenji — the “ji” character means second or next. The most “vanilla” sounding names in Japanese (i.e., the names that correspond to John and Mary Smith in English) are Taro and Hanako Yamada. [J-List]
