Can also mean "fruit".

If you change it into "MINORI", then it will be a feminine name meaning the same.

If I am not mistaken, there's a character in a manga called 'Baby and Me' (which was in Shojo Beat) named Minoru.

Minoru Shiraishi is a prolific Japanese voice actor, or seiyuu as they're called over there. He also appeared as himself in animated form in the anime Lucky Star during the show's Show Within A Show segments.

If it's Minoru, then it would be equivalent to the verb with the same pronunciation and kanji. In this case, it does not mean "truth" but "to bear fruit". [noted -ed]

Another reading, jitsu, would be used in words like 真実 (shinjitsu), and in this case would mean truth or anything pertaining to truth.
The final reading, mi, is just plain old "fruit" or "berry". It is mostly used in girl's names, but there are some cases where it's used in boy's names.
