mommy moments-name game

mommy moments

Another exciting theme to share here in mommy moments, and our theme for this week is all about Name Games... Japanese name usually written in kanji (Chinese characters), although some names use hiragana or even katakana, or a mixture of kanji and kana. While most "traditional" names use kun'yomi (native Japanese) kanji readings, a large number of given names and surnames use on'yomi (Chinese-based) kanji readings as well.


Keina (恵奈)
My husband is one of many KEI ( 恵, けい) in his family, and we decided that we should name our first child starting with KEI. My mother in- law did all the regular stuff she looked, searched and agonized over for a long time until we both agree that Keina is the perfect name for her. The Japanese meaning of my KEI is Blessed and NA is respectful.


Rio  (里緒)
Rio's name is simple and beautiful name. As a Japanese female name, Rio is written with the characters for "jasmine" (里) and "center; middle" (緒). Other possibilities include "jasmine" (RI) an "cord; strap; beginning" (o), as well as "village; parent's home" (ri) and "cherry" (o) another meaning of (RIO) is river.

Share your precious moments with us here in Mommy Moments. Happy weekend everyone !!!
