Your Name In Japanese - F

Names in Japanese make beautiful works of art. Whether you are searching for art suitable for your home or office - or more personally as a Japanese tattoo design - we have thousands of original designs by Master Takase each meticulously translated and documented and beautifully brushed. We also give you all the information to verify the translations for yourself: We want you to be as happy with the translation as you are with the beautiful art.

This is a list of over eleven thousand names and their meanings meticulously translated to Japanese. The name translations are a phonetic translation to katakana which is the correct way names are translated to Japanese and is the way non-Japanese names appear in dictionaries, newspapers, and encyclopedias.

When possible we also include literal translation to kanji which translates the original meaning of the name. The literal translation works especially well for names like Faith and Joy where the name has a clear meaning. For more information on how names can be translated to Japanese read Eri Takase's article How to Write Names in Japanese which first appeared in her monthly column in Martial Arts Insiders Magazine.

Note that a name can have several pronunciation and may even have different meanings depending on the derivation. A common example is the name "Jan" which can be pronounced JAN or YAHN. Because of space limitations we do not show the pronunciation in this list, however, if you click on the name you can find this information along with other important details about the translation.
