Jomei is a typically masculine name which is often defined as meaning “spread light,” although some sources offer “spread joy” instead. It is said that boys with this name love music and friendship, and who wouldn’t want a child that embraced those aspects of life wholeheartedly? Jomei has Sikh origins but is still recognized as a distinctly Japanese name, although it is far from common in that country. The name Jomei also isn’t particularly popular in the United States, although perhaps new parents looking to embrace either Japanese heritage or Sikhism may find it appealing.
