Japanese form of the Okinawan warabi-naa or personal name (childhood name in its literal sense) Gujī (呉勢/グジー), which is comprised of 呉 (go, kure, ku.reru / gu) meaning "do something for, give" and 勢 (sei, zei, ikio.ri, hazumi / ji-) meaning "energy, power, force, vigour."This name was common before the early 20th century among commoner women, though it's also used for women of samurai (with an addition of either a prefix or a suffix) and aristocratic women (with additions of both a prefix and a suffix).
