Japanese Names for Baby Girls With Meaning

Congratulations on your baby girl, now it's time to pick the perfect name that will follow her through her lifetime. The Japanese language is deep and meaningful, and there is no shortage of incredible names to choose from for your baby girl. Search through popular names, beautiful names, nature-inspired names, blessed names, and names that communicate strength, character, and virtue.

When choosing a name, consider which qualities you would like your daughter to have. It's important to note that many of these names have been translated into English from hiragana, and many of them can have multiple meanings (or derivatives) and are represented by various kanji (characters). If you are new to the Japanese language, start by learning how to read hiragana. Happy searching!
