Yoshimitsu from the Soul Calibur series and Tekkens series is a swordsman and a cheery one at that. (At least in Soul Calibur)

Irresistably cute!

This is a good name, but I won't use it on a child. I'm afraid they might tease him/her like, "Oh! It's the green Yoshi! Where's Mario and Luigi?" It's good, but I'd rather name a pet this than a kid.

I always think about the cute little reptile. I'm a big fan of Nintendo, but I think I would name either my dog, fish, or any type animal, not human.

Yoshi reminds me of the Mario Brothers!

I'm a big Nintendo fan. And I love this name. If I get a dog, I have to call it Yoshi.

I love Yoshi from the Mario games! I couldn't use it on a child because of the dinosaur, but it's a really adorable name.

Every time I hear this name, I think of Splinter's owner, Master Yoshi, from TMNT. I like this name and I personally would name my child Yoshi, though it'd be a middle name (eg: James Yoshi).

Please don't name your child Yoshi. They'd never escape the Mario jokes.

"Yoshi!" as an expression in Japanese is somewhat of a slang term meaning "Alright!" or "Let's do it!" or "Let's go!" etc.

Unless you're Japanese, it's best that you avoid this name. Everyone will think of the Mario character.

Based on some research that I've done (gathering names from passenger lists), Yoshi was popular for girls in the late Edo period and the Meiji period. Most of the female Yoshis would have had their names written in kana.

This goes back to the fact that 1 and 2 syllable names were preferred at the time, more so before the Meiji period, which is why Yoshi was seen as a girl's name. Towards the 2nd half of the Meiji period and the Taishō period, those types of names were quickly shunted out in popularity by names ending in *ko.
