Comments for DAISUKE:

Isn't this the name of the main anime character from D.N. Angel?

Yep, the name Daisuke just happens to be the name of Daisuke Niwa from D.N. Angel. I love this name, as well! It's probably my favorite Japanese name, but I also really like the name Takashi.

Very common among young Japanese boys.

Pronounced (DIE-skay) on the D.N.Angel anime dvd's.

I really like this name. I didn't used to but that's because I thought it was pronounced "day-SOOK-ay," but the real pronunctiation changed my mind. And after looking at some "suke" names, I've come to a conclusion. Does "suke" mean "help"? And as a Naruto fan, I'm wondering what Sasuke means.

Daisuke is the name of a character from Digimon (who is 'Davis' in the dub.)

I really like this name because I thought it was pronounced Die-sook-ee. I'm not sure about it though. A cute nickname would be Sukes. I used this name for a female character in a story.

Yes, *suke* in fact does mean 'assistance'. Sasuke can mean different things depending on the kanji used.

From what I can tell, *sa* could mean 'difference', or 'help'. But I'm not a native Japanese speaker, nor do I know of any other kanji for *sa* and their meanings.

Strange, I see "Daisy Duke".
-- welovejamesarness  10/24/2009
To me, it just has the right kind of sound for a boy.

I've also heard it pronounced Dai-skay in anime dubs where the "u" sound is almost completely silent.

This is a cool name! :D.
-- InazumaElevenFangirl  8/10/2014
2 syllables 'Dai' pronounced like 'dye' or 'die' in English and 'suke' sounds like 'skay' as in 'skate'.
-- S4acre  12/12/2014
It reminds me of the Japanese word 'daisuki', meaning love or really like. It can be used in these sentences: 'I really like (what you like).' Daisuke is a good name for a boy anywhere on the world. 'Dai-skey'.
-- TahliaWNSW  12/17/2014
The /u/ sound in this name, as is frequently the case in Japanese, is skipped. Thus the pronunciation is more like /die-skei/.
-- Aurelien  2/23/2015
While the first half of this name is nearly always written with 大 ("big") or 太 ("fat"), the second half can be written with a number of characters including 介 ("mediate," "shellfish," "jammed in"), 祐 ("help"), 助 ("help"), 典 ("rule," "law," "ceremony"), 修 ("discipline," "study").
