I like this name as the most common used kanji to write it is very beautiful. The kanji are also intricate, delicate and beautiful to look at. It is also a good Japanese name as Westerners can easily associate to it, even if it is pronounced differently to the English Naomi.

There are numerous kanji possibilities for the "nao" portion of this name and you can check the comments under "Naoko" for some more. For the "mi" portion, you can use either "beautiful" or "fruit", but beautiful is more common.

In some areas of Japan, this name has been extremely common at times (kind of like Jennifer here).

I love this name. MIAOMI is very pretty. It has always reminded me of a beautiful Japanese maiden. (that is if someone pronounces it in just the right way.)

The Japanese pronunciation would be Now Me.

Correct pronunciation in Japanese is something like Nah-Oh-Mee, with the "Nah-Oh" blended together in speech to create a long "now" sound.

A very pretty name with a very pretty meaning. Although for some odd reason when I hear this name the first thing that pops into my head is a tropical beachside.

My middle name rocks! My first name is often skipped & I have acheived the nickname Mimi. I hate how people mispronounce it as NI-omee. If you can read right, you'd be able to tell that the "i" is at the end. Most don't know it, but there is a significant difference in meaning if you pronounce it wrong, plus- it can get the bearer angry.

I so much prefer the Japanese version of this name! I hate the way "Naomi (Ney-owe-mi)" is pronounced in the western sense. It sounds whiny and ugly. But to pronounce it Nao-Mi sounds both cute and elegant at once.
Unfortunately, if I called my child Naomi, you can bet everyone would pronounce it wrong. :(

My name is Naomi, and so I was wondering, if I ever go to Japan (which I would really like to), does that mean everyone will call me NOW-ME? I grew up with NY-OH-ME (as much as I hated it) and NAY-OH-ME. I don't mind NOW-ME as much.:/
