22 Uncommon Japanese Baby Names
This lovely name is more commonly heard with baby girls, but itâ€™s widely recognized as being equally appropriate for boys. However, itâ€™s still uncommon with either sex. Most sites around the web translate Kokoro as some variation of â€œheart,â€ â€œmind,â€ or â€œfeelings,â€ although variations in the Kanji can make it mean â€œsuperiorityâ€ or â€œidea.â€ The name has gained some slight traction in the United States in recent years, especially as modern parents desire to honor their ancestry or other cultures, but donâ€™t expect to see the name with any regularity any time soon! Kokoro, no matter what the meaning, is still decidedly uncommon.
