This name belongs to a geisha named Sayuri (fomerly named Chiyo), the woman who's life story is told in the novel "Memoirs of a Geisha". The story takes place in the 30's and 40's.

What can I say? I love Japanese names and this is a very pretty one. It has a nice, strong meaning; and a flair to it. Not too strong, but not weak, either. Just pretty.

I think Sayuri is a very, very beautiful name, but for me, it was ruined by the book "Memoirs of a Geisha". No offense to Mr Golden, but I feel his book misrepresented the Geisha. Contrary to what it says in "Memoirs of a Geisha", Geisha are NOT prostitutes, they are artisans - dancers and musicians who preserve the Japanese traditional arts.

This is a really beautiful name, but unfortunately Memoirs of a Geisha ruined it. What a shame.
