Nariko is a name of many meanings, many of which seem to contradict one another. One source says Nariko means “a gentle child,” while another popular website declares that the name means “thunder.” Depending on how the Kanji is written, Nariko can also mean “beautiful village child,” “green pear child,” or even “child of crystal fruit trees.” How can any modern parent decide on just one? This lovely Japanese name is rooted in Judaism, making it appeal to a different group of expectant parents on a religious level. The name is decidedly uncommon in America, and hasn’t caught any national attention abroad, either.
