I think that including every kanji possibility for every name would be far beyond the scope of this site. It's difficult even to list all the most common ones. There used to be a (Japanese-language) website with every known Japanese girls' name listed with every known kanji spelling, and it was tens of thousands of names long. Unfortunately, it seems to have been taken down.

I contributed a long list of Japanese names including all that have been on the top 100 for the past couple of years. I don't know if they have all been added yet, but that should account for at least the more popular current names =). Having older/traditional/dated names (for instance, girl's names ending with -ko) on the site shouldn't be a problem as there are certainly many, many Japanese who still have these names.
