Japanese Names

I support those who make up their own names and those who look up Japanese names. Regardless, I want everyone to adhere to these guidelines in order to maintain sanity.

In Japanese language, most consonants are followed by vowels. That's just how the Japanese writing system works. However, unlike English, a lot of instances vowel follow vowels. Here is a Hiragana chart to help you understand what goes together. Hiragana is the most base writing system in Japan. Katagana being used for foreign words derrived from English, and Kanji being the big scary characters you use for nouns and the beginnings of verbs, etc. For now, this chart should just help you see two letters are usually grouped together to make one hiragana. Combine a few of them, and you have a word or a name. Watch out for meanings!

Typically, you can combine any of these together, but I wouldn't suggest it. If you're new at making Japanese names, look up a few on google and sift through them! You can also always PM me for help.


Refer to this. I want to see you using the Hepburn way. I don't want to see any Samisens instead of Shamisens please.

Also, no ō's. They drive me mad especially in usernames. ō = ou.

I don't think I need to say this, but use English characters not Japanese anywhere. I can read it, but I don't think many others will be able to.
