Comments for the name Nana


Comments for NANA (2):

Nana is the name of the dog in "Peter Pan." It isn't the Japanese name however; it came from "Nanny" because that was the dog's occupation.

I'd have to check on the reference to this name meaning "apple" because I didn't know the kanji for apple could be pronounced that way.

For "na", one can use the first character in Nara (which has a meaning that has something to do with a plant) or a kanji meaning name. For the second kanji, one can either choose one of these 2 kanji or a kanji that basically takes on the reading of the kanji before it (kind of like a ditto).

You can add an "e" (ay) and make the name Nanae.

I'm suprised Nana Kitada hasn't been mentioned. She's a fairly well known singer in Japan, and is a Gothic Lolita fashion icon.

The word "Nana" in Japanese means "seven" when written with hiragana. It can be spelled using different characters, a whole variety of them meaning many things, but it first and foremost means "seven". It is also a rather popular girls first name or a nickname for girls with names like Nanako or Nanase.

One might use this as a nickname for someone called Nayab.
