Anime characters name and their meanings

To make this list about the meaning of anime character names I did a research to find out which names are the most popular among the characters, I also tried to understand which the most popular anime characters.

Meaning of the Boku no Hero Academy character names

The meaning of the name Uraraka Ochako [麗日お茶子] is bright and beautiful. Ideograms [麗日] means glorious spring day, where only [麗] means lovely, beautiful, graceful and resplendent. While the name Ochako [茶子] refers to tea [茶] and a child [子].

The meaning of the name Midoriya Izuku [緑谷出久] is a green valley [緑谷] where [緑] means green and [谷] means valley. Izuku ideograms mean [出] going out, going out and [久] long time.

Anime character names and their meanings

The meaning of Bleach character names

The meaning of the name Ichigo Kurosaki [一護黒崎] is not strawberry as some think. Despite being a slight reference to fruit, Ichigo is written [一 護] which means protecting [護] one [一] thing. Kurosaki [黒崎] means black cover [崎] [黒]. Ichigo also remembers the number 15, so we can see the 15 as easter egg at various times in the work.

The meaning of Dragon Ball character names

The meaning of the name Gohan [悟飯] refers to “one who is nourished by understanding” or “enlightenment that feeds.” The ideogram [悟] means discern, perceive, understand, enlighten. While [飯] means boiled rice or meal.

The meaning of the name Goku [悟空] refers to “heavenly enlightenment” or “heavenly perception.” The name has the ideogram of [空] which means sky or void. The surname Son [孫] of the characters Son Goku and Son Gohan means grandson or descendant.

Anime character names and their meanings

The meaning of Naruto character names

The meaning of Anime Naruto’s name Hinata Hyuuga [日向ヒナタ] can mean “Sun Place”, “Sunny Place” or “Sunflower”. The names Hinata and Hyuuga are both written [日 向] and have the same meaning, so Hinata is written in katakana.

The meaning of the name Sakura Haruno [サクラ春野] is also written in Katakana where Sakura means Cherry and Haruno [春野] means spring [春] and plains or fields [野].
