22 Uncommon Japanese Baby Names
Parents throughout the world have long delighted in giving their children names inspired by nature, and this is a trend that has been picking up in the United States especially. A sweet, relatively unique Japanese name that draws on this theme is Chouko, which means â€œbutterflyâ€ or â€œbutterfly child.â€ Generally a feminine name, Chouko draws on Shinto origins. Depending on the Kanji, some sources also say the name means â€œlucid childâ€ or even â€œlong child,â€ whatever that means. No matter which precise definition appeals most, Chouko is a lovely name that would surely benefit any daughter it were given to.
