Meaning & History

From 縁 (enishi) meaning "fate, destiny; bond, link," derived from 縁 (eni), shifted from en (compare 銭 zen>zeni), with the addition of emphatic particle し (shi).
It can also be suffixed with a shi kanji, like 士 meaning "samurai" or 志 meaning "will, aim, goal."

One fictional bearer of this name is Enishi Yukishiro (雪代 縁) from the Rurouni Kenshin universe.
