Unique and Beautiful Japanese girl names you must use for your sweet baby girl…

If you have not been following my blog long, then you wouldn’t know that I am half Okinawan. I grew up as an Air Force brat and lived the majority of my life on the little island of paradise.

Just by looking at me you wouldn’t know it, most think I am of Hispanic origin.

But anyway, I wanted to list some beautiful Japanese Girl names! My favorite name growing up was Airi, or love and affection.

If my husband and I would’ve had a daughter, I would have named her Airi.

I guess I am also partial to the name because one of my cousins (I have 20+ on my mom’s side) name is Airi.

Choosing baby names can definitely be challenging! Let me help you with these beautiful and unique Japanese baby girl names!

My Final Thoughts

I know how difficult choosing a baby name for your baby is. Trust me, I have two kids! For me, I chose two individuals who I looked up to growing up… my uncle Katsuyoshi and my grandpa. For my oldest son’s middle name derives from my grandpa’s middle name: Joseph.

My youngest son’s middle name derives from my uncle: Katsuyoshi.
