It is a very beautiful name.

She's not very well-known to people who don't watch this show or people who don't remember all the episodes, but in the fifteenth episode of CardCaptor Sakura Kero-chan was taken care of by a little girl names Akane. It was one of my favorite episodes! "Chau, chau, chau, chau!"

The definition is correct, but I just want to point out that there is a more commonly used name pronounced Akane written with a different character, one that means "walk" as in to walk one's own path.

Akane is usually written with the kanji for 'deep red'. But there are many different kanjis for the name, for example Akane can also be written as 'Peaceful Flower Sound', etc.

I don`t know a kanji that means 'walk own path' that can be pronounced Akane. Ayumi means 'counter of own steps' or 'walk', but I don't think Akane does.

I read somewhere, in a Japanese dictionary, that this name also means "madder", as in the flower.

This name also means 'Madder' (Aka - red, ne - root), and this is the meaning used for Akane Tendo in Ranma 1/2.

This name is cool and it still remind me of my favorite show Ranma 1/2.

This is a really pretty name. Uncommon, but still attractive to the eye and ear. When I think of this name, I imagine it belonging to a calm and collected, but sarcastic and selfless individual. It is a really sweet and charming name.

I have a friend named Akane whose kanjis are 朱峰 (red/vermillion peak). It is an irregular reading, and definitely a one-of-a-kind combination... I'm not sure what the parents mean by giving her that name, though :)

It's so pretty, and I love names that have meanings relating to the color red. Much love for Akane.
