Baby names that work in Both Japanese and English
Are you having a baby in Japan? Choosing a name can be hard. You don’t want to have to have a Japanese only name – but most English names don’t work in Japanese.
In this blog we list some names and their pronunciations that can work in both Japanese and English.
If you are looking for a name for your baby that will be easy to pronounce and “normal” in both English and Japanese – you should hope for a girl. 🙂
This is because there are generally more names to choose from.

Although there is a smaller selection of boys names to choose from – there are still several options.
One important thing to note is that there are definitely other names out there – but we chose to include the most commonly used names that have almost 1-1 direct equivalents. 🙂
