Every post I see from you is you on your dang soapbox talking down on everyone and sounding like you're all high and mighty. If you want to educate people you can do it without being a pompous brat.
anyways, I'm going to stick to The eastern Asian countries

In answer to the OP: I think it is great that you are more interested in Asian cultures because of anime. Does it really matter how you gain an interest in something, as long as you are interested? And isn't it unfair to shortchange "cartoons" in Japanese culture, if you're so interested in the cultural integrity? I took an elective course in high school called Asian Studies, where we studied the history of culture of Asia, focusing on China, Japan, and Korea.
Some of my favorite names come from the Japanese culture (I'll focus on boys, since you do not have many):
Ken'ichi (ok, so this is because of Matsuyama, the actor. If you haven't seen any of his films, I recommend them!)
Kaoru (unisex)Expecting #1 November 2015.It's a boy! Baby E.C.M.B.

Thanks for the support everyone; I really didn't mean to cause all the fuss. I just used 'Asian' in general to get a variety of countries represented, instead of just one or two countries. Anyhoo, I'm half Chinese, so I've always been interested in the Eastern Asian countries, and anime just opened my eyes to Japanese culture since I live in America.
And I love all the names listed so far!~ Catholic. College. Communicative Disorders. ~~(updated 8/28/15)
