Female Japanese Names List with Kanji and meaning

Unlike most lists of Japanese names on the internet, in this article you will see a list of the ideograms (kanji) and their meanings. I hope you enjoy this huge list of feminine names with perfect meanings to put on your child or pet.

Remembering that the meaning is rather shallow and sometimes does not make sense, because it requires the person to know the ideogram (kanji) and its essence to understand the deep meaning of each name.

I recommend that before deciding the name of your daughter, make a long search of the meaning of these ideograms used in the jisho.org dictionary. See also a list of names of anime characters with meanings.

To make it easier to search, you can press CTRL + F and type the name you are looking for.

Unfortunately our List is limited and does not own 5% of the existing Japanese names nor does it specify details of their meanings. If you want to delve into Japanese names, we recommend some of the name dictionaries below:
