Sounds more like a feminine name to me. I think it would be better for a girl.

In response to the three of you, in Avatar: The Last Airbender, Kiyoshi Island was named for a female warrior who was born on the island. From what I understand (and this may not be correct) it is a Chinese name meaning "teacher".

I'm half Japanese and half Irish-American, born in Niigata, Japan in 1950. The kanji for my name, KIYOSHI, means "pure" or "purity". I agree that Kiyoshi sounds very feminine (in the USA). In fact, I often get mail from companies and the government addressed to "Mrs." Kiyoshi Hannigan and my wife (nee Teruyo Ichikawa) gets mailed addressed to "Mr." Teri Hannigan (LOL)!

Kiyoshi Ijichi is the drummer of the Japanese rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation. Ijichi credits the origin of his drumming ability to playing in marching bands in junior high.

He met fellow band members Masafumi Gotō, Kensuke Kita, and Takahiro Yamada while attending Kanto Gakuin University in 1996. Unlike the others, Ijichi had prior band experience and was a member of another college band when approached by the three. After parting ways with his old band, Ijichi joined Gotō, Kita, and Yamada to form Asian Kung-Fu Generation and the four have been together ever since.
