Meaning & History

This name can be used as 兼 (ken,, meaning "concurrently, combine" or か, a phonetic character representing ka, with 子 (shi, su, tsu, ko, -ko, -ne) meaning "sign of the rat (1st sign of the Chinese zodiac)" or 禰 (dei, nai, ne) meaning "ancestral shrine."

Kane was slightly uncommon in the early part of the Edo period (1603-1838), though it became popular in the middle and latter part of that period and in the Meiji period (1868-1912). However, the name's popularity slowly decreased by then and by the Taishō period (1912-1926), the name became uncommon to use.
