Gender: F Pronunciation: sa-koo-rah Meaning of Sakura: "cherry blossom" Origin of Sakura: Japanese

Lovely Japanese name that would certainly be appreciated in Europe and the U.S. It was rarely used in Japan until the 1990s, and draws its current popularity from the fact that it is deeply connected to Japanese traditional culture without sounding frumpy and old-fashioned.
