22 Uncommon Japanese Baby Names
One commonly agreed upon meaning for the boyâ€™s name Tetsuya is â€œphilosopher,â€ often with descriptors like â€œintelligentâ€ thrown in. Other methods of writing the Kanji can make Tetsuya mean â€œiron arrowâ€ or â€œthoroughness.â€ Popular website Baby Center doesnâ€™t list any kind of popularity for Tetsuya since 2016, and even then, it was way far down on their lists. The name is of Shinto origin and is seen sporadically throughout recent Japanese history, given to politicians, composers, musicians, and even a character in the Pokemon animated television series.
