Akemi Cynthia Paule Uchima (Minami Saori is her Screen name amd her real name is Akemi Uchima and her Filipino name is Cynthia) became a famous singer in Japan when she made a hit song "Seventeen Year Old". For years, she has denied the fact that she was born in Okinawa due to Japanese discrimination against Okinawans.

Akemi is a really beautiful name. I have a close friend named this and she is often called 'Kemi' for short, which is also nice.

This is a pretty name and it sounds so daring. Like a Japanese Martial art expert. (A girl of course)

This is a very lovely name. I've spent hours searching for good sounding Japanese names and Akemi probably is one of the best that I have found. A great aspect of this name is that even though it's Japanese it doesn't really step out of the normal by sounding really foreign in America. This is a name that would seem to be more acceptable than Michiko or Katsuhito in a classroom full of first graders. Although that really all depends. Also, Akemi could be a good substitute for Kimberly. They sound alike but mean totally different things. I would for sure consider naming my daughter Akemi. =)
