Thanks for all these suggestions!
We have a friend Rin in Japan, she pronounces it Reen. I actually really like Rin, I prefer the sound of Ren but somehow that spelling sends my mind right to Stimpy!
We don't know how much longer we will live here, so we're more concerned that a North American can pronounce since in the long term we will probably settle there.
My faves of all the suggestions are Mei, Sakura, Aomori and Asami. The town where we live is Nikko, so I've considered that as a unisex option since otherwise I'm only gravitating towards girl names.
@aurra, YES Be-soo-pa is how they say her name, so funny. I had no idea where we were moving there when we had her so I didn't even fathom it My name is Lane so we are both used to mispronunciations!Mother to Vesper and Ondine

I really don't have any suggestions to add but think others have made some really great ones.
(I noticed you didn't place it as a favorite - which is good - but, I would avoid names like Midori which are known in the US/UK as types of liquors. It wouldn't really bother me but with Vesper becomeing a popular cocktail it might just been too obvious).
I personally really love ideas that work well in other languages and don't sound too Japanese since you don't have the heritage (or using it as a mn). Something like Naomi, Mai, and Seira would be what I would lean toward for a fn....if my husbands has no vote, then....
