Actual Japanese names, I'll have you know.

This will be a list of actual Japanese names, none of that Akuma and Usagi bull. I can't write kanji/hiragana/katakana on my computer, sorry. Certain elements, such as -ko, -yo, and -taro, while often seen in media as common in Japanese names, are now fairly rare and are seen as dated. Anyway, here you go! Both genders. - Created by Hydra
