Japanese Word Names

Word names are all the rage these days. But if you don't want your kid to be one of the many nouns in his/her classroom but like the meanings, looking to words in other languages might help. An exotic language such as Japanese can provide many alternatives to virtue and word names but mean the same thing. They also have the added value of Kanji script. - Created by Aurra
