Means a bow as in "Archery Bow", not "pretty pink Bow".

I personally love the names Yumi and Yumiko. Though "Yumiko" is not on this site, and on another I found it meant "beautiful child." I thought it would have meant "bow child" or something, because of the use of the suffix "ko" which usually means "child."

One half of the famous JPop group Puffy AmiYumi is named Yumi.

Again, many possibilities for this name (depending on the kanji).

-freedom (I think they also use this character for "bow", but I'm not sure)
-together/friend (rare, but I did meet one Yumi who used this kanji... though the name would normally be pronounced Tomomi in this case)
-bear (produce... as in produce fruit)

This is a really cool and pretty name. And I love it. Only, one of the main characters from Code Lyoko has this name. And I really really really really hate that show. -grabs knife-

Yumi is also the name of one of the main characters in the French anime show Code Lyoko.

Yumi, when used as a name, refers to "yu" meaning bow, and "mi" meaning beauty, to combine together making "beauty bow," or "beautiful bow. [noted -ed]

Yumi is pronounced "yoo-me" or rather "you-me".
Yumi  5/24/2006
I think this name should mean "together" because the name is YUMI. Like, YOU and ME. YUMI.

Yumi was the name of the young alien girl character in the 1980s English-language anime kids' show "Ulysses 31". Her older brother was named Numinor (which is curious in itself as Numinor is a place name used by both J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis).

Think about spelling it Yummy. I have a friend called Yummy and she is a very saucy, joyful lady!
leananshae  11/25/2007
When using the kanji bearing the meaning of "friend", if one chooses to pronounce it "yuu" rather than "tomo", then it's "yuu" with a long "u" and not "yu" as the yu in Yumiko. So that would be Yûmiko. It may exist, I can't be sure, but I don't think it is really used.

I think Yumi in Chakushin Ari counts.

When I first saw this name, I thought "You me?" But then I looked at the name again and realized that this name is very nice.

I like Yumi, and I think it has a sweet, simplistic and pleasant sound. But what I like most about it is the look of the kanji it is written with - 弓. It looks like what it means. Simple, curved, elegant and arched - an archery bow. Which makes it much easier (for me) to remember and draw than many other characters. I also like Yumi spelt 弓美 (because I find "beautiful bow" prettier than just "bow") and 夕美 - evening beauty, which I think has a mysterious and poetic feel to it.

Awww! Such a cute middle name.

Yumi is a beautiful, elegant name and is personally one of my favourite Japanese girl names. It's very simple to pronounce. Famous bearers I know are Yumi Ishiyama in Code Lyoko and Yumi in Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. I wouldn't sway away from using this name just because it sounds similar to the words "you" and "me" or because it may remind some ignorant folks that it looks like the word "yummy" (even though Yumi is of Japanese origin, not English origin!); Yumi sounds pleasant enough, the meaning is great, and the name itself is super cute! DEFINITELY is a name worth to consider! :D.

Funny to see how many people knew Yumi is/was the name of a Code Lyoko character.

Mainly that's how I found this name.

I have a friend called Yumii. Does anyone know if that would still mean arched bow or would it have a different meaning?
Kdizz  11/6/2017
To Kdizz, it depends on the kanji your friend is using. This name has many possible meanings like "Beautiful friend" because Yu means "friend" and Mi means "beauty". Many kanji are posted to this sight, just to serve as a source that the names are flexible.
