There is a famous radio pastor (well famous in church circles anyway) named Nobumichi Murakami whose kanji are "preach/declare the Way"... Very appropriate for a pastor.

A character in the book "Memoirs of a Geisha" is named Nobu. He owns an electric company I think. I haven't read the book in quite some time.

Indeed, there is a character in the novel/movie "Memoirs of a Geisha" called Nobu, a shortened version of his name. He's the co-owner of Iwamura Electric, named for his business partner, Iwamura Ken, aka The Chairman as he's known through most of the plot. He's a war hero from Manchuria, having lost an arm (only in the novel).

My name is Nobuko and it is a female version of this name.
It's rather old-fashioned. My name means "relaxing and uninhibited child". The meaning and its Chinese character are good but I don't like my name spelled in alphabet.
