If anyone reading here likes the Japanese form of comics (manga and anime), then you probably already know that the name has been used for a series called 'Fruits Basket', and is the nickname for 'Yukito' in Cardcaptor Sakura. Personally I think it's a lovely name!

Used alone for a girl's name or as part of either a boy's name or a girl's name (boys who are just Yuki are actually Yuuki if it's not short for something).

For boys, they use just one kanji to make up the "yuki" portion of their names (if they have yuki in their names). For girls, it can be one or 2.

"yuki":
-happiness/luck
-snow
-this
-go

"yu":
-freedom
-together/friend (this character is usually pronounced "tomo" though)
-bear (produce... as in "bear fruit")
-kind/smart
-play

"ki"
-joy
-honour/respect/worship
-writings
-turtle (rare in names these days)

Yuki alone and with two characters can be a guy's name as well. Yuki written with the characters for "gentle, best" and "hope" is on the Top 100 for boys and also quite common for girls. [noted -ed]

Pronounced YOO-kee.

At first, I thought that Yuki was a boy's name because of Yuki from Fruits Basket (he was the first person, real or fictional, that I knew as having the name). I think Yuki is a cute name for both genders, though probably a child with the name Yuki ought to be a girl, because apparently it's really a girl's name. If I were going to name something Yuki, it would probably be a character in a story or a pet (probably a rat, because of Yuki from Fruits Basket).

I am amazed no one wrote this down, Cross Yuuki (Proper Japanese) is a protaganist from the popular manga series Vampire Knight!
-- SebastianCharlie4evr  11/23/2008
That is because Japanese word "Yuki" (雪、 snow) has nothing to do with "yuuki" (勇気、 courage). ;) As for names, of course, there can be various meanings depending on the kanjis used.

This is an equally pretty name for both boys and girls, although I could never use it, because I am American, and people would just think I am a thoughtless otaku.
I always think of Yuki Sohma from Furuba, who was nicknamed "Yun-Yun" (which I love) by his friend, Nabe-chan.
