Meaning

A name with two distinct stories behind it: one biblical and the one truly exotic, coming all the way from Japan. Associated with the Hebrew word for “pleasantness”, this is a name that first appeared in the Bible. On the other hand, its Japanese roots bring several other meanings to it, namely “straight” and “beautiful”, from its kanji characters. A cute choice, with international appeal!
