A list of strong Japanese boy names with their meanings…
As some of you know I am from a little island called Okinawa. It’s a small island south of Japan, and it is the most beautiful place I have ever been (I know I’m being biased).
I spent most of my life there, roughly 10 years on and off. My dad was in the Air Force growing up so when we weren’t in Okinawa, we were in Ramstein, Germany or Rochester, New York.

It may be 10 years since I’ve lived in Okinawa, but it will always be home to me.
When I was pregnant with our youngest son, I wanted to ensure that we had a strong Japanese boy name as his middle name. Something in me felt that he needed a strong name like that.
My mom has five brothers: Masaru, Masanobu, Tsutomu, Katsugi, and Katsuyoshi. All unique and strong boy names.

My Final Thoughts
I hope you enjoy these Japanese baby boy names as much as I do. It is always good to honor your family’s heritage, even if it is a first or middle name of your child.
Our boy’s don’t speak a lick of Japanese (I’m trying to change that) but their features and middle name honors our culture.
Where are you from? What is your favorite name from your culture? I’d love to hear about it!
