22 Uncommon Japanese Baby Names
Any parent expecting a boy hopes their son will be big and healthy, and the name Tarou is an excellent embodiment of that desire. Tarou literally means â€œa big sonâ€ or â€œbig man,â€ according to one of the most common ways of writing the Kanji. Other Kanji arrangements are equally positive, with meanings like â€œgentle cheerfulness,â€ â€œbig tower,â€ or â€œthick cherry blossoms.â€ Tarou, of Shinto origins, is almost always a boyâ€™s name, and itâ€™s just different enough from other common boy names like Taro and Taru to make it stand out in a crowd. Tarou is unique and positive.
