This strong masculine name is most often translated to mean “tree” or “timber tree,” but like so many other Japanese names, the meaning changes depending on how the Kanji is written. Itsuki can just as easily mean “cleanse” or “purification,” or “bright,” or “moon.” Itsuki is sometimes seen as a surname, but as a given name, it’s shared by a handful of Japanese athletes, plus it’s been spotted in numerous mangas and graphic novels. No matter which meaning (and Kanji) is most liked, any are perfect for a son, so perhaps it’s time to boost the popularity of this name.
