Kagami is a Japanese girl’s name that is actually of Christian origins. Some sources say Kagami means “mirror,” which is a lovely thought. One way of writing the Kanji means “additional beauty,” which is perhaps where the idea of a mirror comes from. Kagami can also mean “incense of the ocean,” which is a wonderful, wild, earthy idea.

Regardless of how one chooses to write the Kanji or which particular meaning appeals most, Kagami is a great name for a daughter.
