40 Unique Japanese girl’s names

Japanese women’s names– Names personal in Japan – this is the most difficult direction in the Japanese language. Women’s names are no exception. At first, reading translations, it may seem that there is nothing complicated. In Japanese, first the last name is pronounced, and then the name.

In many Western languages, first the name is pronounced, and then the last name. But believe me – this is the smallest difficulty you face when dealing with Japanese names. Although even such a small thing sometimes confuses people weakly familiar with Japanese culture.

In Japanese culture, and in particular personal names, over the last hundred years, there have been dramatic changes. It also affected the spelling of names and their meaning. New characters and signs for spelling names were allowed.

The last major change dates back to the nineties of the twentieth century. Then the Japanese parliament amended the list of permitted signs for the spelling of names. In principle, these signs are updated with amendments about every five years. But as they say, not only dead language changes.

The change in attitude to traditions is particularly affected in modern names of the Japanese. If japan used to be a very traditional society, now with each generation it comes to naught. Very popular among modern Japanese names for girls names from Japanese comics – manga.

Manga is one of Japan’s cultural phenomena, comics touching on a variety of topics, both for children and adults. Manga in fact – is not a familiar children’s comic, and quite serious literary and visual work. This cultural phenomenon is known and popular all over the world.

The transliteration of Japanese names for girls is also a challenge. Transliteration of any language causes a lot of controversies, let alone the language of the country of the rising sun.

The Polivanov system is most often used in Russian practice. It was introduced in the thirties of the twentieth century and has since been an unspoken approved system of transliteration from Japanese to Cyrillic.
