Meaning & History
The "Eater of Nightmares (a lion-headed ghost)" in Japanese Mythology. If you call for him, he will eat away your nightmares. It can also refer to a "Tapir", for its appearance. I've heard that in the Japanese language, Baku means "Command Esteem", "Receive or Gain", or "Win Acclaim".
