Meaning & History

This name is used as 和国 with 和 (o, ka, wa,, nago.yaka, yawa.ragu, yawa.rageru) meaning "harmony, Japan, Japanese style, peace, soften" and 国 (koku, kuni) meaning "country."
One bearer of this name is manga artist Wakuni Akisato (秋里 和国) (1960-).

As a word, it was a name used by ancient Chinese rulers to refer to Japan, although, in Japanese, it's written as Wakoku (わこく) rather than Wakuni.

This name is rarely given to girls, if given at all.
Wakuni is also used as a surname.
