Meaning & History

This name can be used as 景郎, 陽炎 or 蜉蝣 with 景 (kei, kage) meaning "scenery, view," 郎 (ryou, rou, otoko) meaning "son," 陽 (you, hi) meaning "daytime, heaven, male, positive, sunshine, yang principle," 炎 (en, honoo) meaning "blaze, flame, inflammation," 蜉 (fu), an outdated kanji meaning "kind of ant, may fly" and 蝣 (yuu), another outdated kanji meaning "may fly."

This name coincides with the words 陽炎 meaning "heat haze, shimmer of hot air" and 蜉蝣 meaning "mayfly, ephemeropteran, dragonfly, damselfly."

Fictional bearers of this name include Kagerō (陽炎 - female) from Basilisk, another Kagerō (陽炎 - female) from Ninja Scroll and Kagerō Shōkiin (青鬼院 蜻蛉 - male) from Inu x Boku SS.

This name is extremely rare. According to data compiled from phonebooks, only 9 people (all most likely male) were given 景郎, 2 were given 陽炎 and 1 was given 蜉蝣.
