Key: Meaning/History Usage Pronunciation Famous Bearer Personal Impression Other

Comments are left by users of this website. They are not checked for accuracy.

There is no set list of Japanese names, and many different kanji with many different meanings can have the same pronunciation. "Ai", for example, can mean "Asia clothes", with "a" meaning Asia, and "i" meaning clothes. This is not particularly common, though.

One of my students at my school where I taught had the name Ai even though she used the kanji for "grace", which is usually pronounced "megu" or "megumi" on its own and "e" (ay) in names with other kanji present. This would be rather rare though.

Some other Japanese names with Ai in them:

The character for "ai" is pronounced "a" in some names and there are many names where this is used.

The meaning of the name Ai is gorgeous but other than that you're better off naming your kid Aiko or not use this name at all because it sound like 'I' and it's like using the name love in America. It's just unprofessional and seem hipish.

Though perhaps not so famous, Ai Haibara (alias Shiho Miyano) from Detective Conan has the kanji 哀 for her name. It means "sorrow," and she picked the name for her shrunken form because of her sorrowful past (all of her family members are dead).
