Dear sirs

First of all, I appreciate your wonderful website of well-researched orgines of names.

In your entry, there is Mai as a vietnamese word for flowers. While it is correct, I might add that Mai is also a Japanese name, meaning to dance.

Written in Kanji character (Similar to Chinese), Mai corresponds to the second charater of Kabuki: Ka means song, Bu means dance and Ki means to act. Bu can also read as Mai.

best regards
Mai Chiba
