In the show "Sailor Moon" it was Sailor Moon's Japanese name.

Sailor Moon's surname, Tsukino, is a pun for 'of the moon'. So her name itself is a pun for the rabbit of the moon, a Japanese legend.

There's a Manga (Japanese comic) about a rabbit samurai called Usagi Yoyimbo.

Most Japanese people would not name a child "Usagi". In fact, some might even laugh (maybe quietly to themselves) if they heard that a couple had inflicted that on their daughter. [noted -ed]

A famous writer named herself Usagi (Nakamura Usagi) as her pen name, but it's not for a real name. It's funny if you see people called Usagi.

Actually, it isn't too uncommon to see a girl named Usagi in Japan. It's just that the Kanji used to spell it doesn't mean "rabbit". I've seen it spelt so that it means "heron's feather/wing", "full moon", and several other ways that I can't recall at the moment.

In the manga series DOLLS Seiju mishears his teammate's name (Usaki) as Usagi and he insists on calling him that.

Associated with the moon as in Japanese tradition a rabbit is seen in the shadows on the moon, not the man as in European tradition.

In the anime and manga series "Junjou Romantica" a character (Usami Akihiko) is nicknamed Usagi.

After watching the Japanese version of Sailor Moon, I know that this name is pronounced "oo-SAW-gee".
