This is so cute. I wish I could use it without feeling like it was inappropriate (I'm about as white as white can get)

Chihiro Says:


Thousand Questions is not true meaning of this name. 'Chi' means 'thousand' and that is correct. Chinese character used for 'hiro' is commonly used to mean 'ask' (not 'questions' ) in modem Japanese but it is also an ancient unit to measure expanse or depth. 1hiro is roughly 6 feet. Chihiro, thousand hiro, is an expression used to describe something infinitely deep or expansive. The translation of the name Chihiro should be something more like 'infinity'.
