List of Japanese male names with meanings

In this article, we are going to see a list of Japanese male names with their ideogram and meaning. This list can be useful for those who want to name their child or even a pet.

Remembering that the meaning is quite shallow and sometimes it doesn't make sense, because it needs the person to know the ideogram and its essence to understand the deep meaning of each name. That's why I don't guarantee a correct 100% translation but a literal one.

I recommend that before deciding on your child's name, do a long research on the meaning of these ideograms using the dictionary. jisho. That way you can be sure if that name is used as a first or last name.
