Meaning & History

This name combines 右 (u, yuu, migi) meaning "right" or 宇 (u) meaning "eaves, heaven, house, roof" with 門 (mon, kado, to) meaning "gate."

One fictional bearer of this name is Umon Kondō, the Edo period constable and main character in the jidaigeki film series, Umon Torimonochō (右門捕物帖).

In modern times, it's rarely given to boys, if given at all.

Umon is also used as a surname.
