    This is pretty pointless to talk about given that most of the people who watch the show don't care that much. Just watch and enjoy the show.

    Figure out where the female demon comes from there.
    Is anyone even reading this post? I don't think Inuyasha means Female Dog Demon, Takahashi surely would not have made such an obvious mistake, and why would she purposly name the show's main male character after something that actually means female dog demon? It may be easy to see where female dog demon could play into the name Inuyasha, but in my opinion, his name is not based on this meaning^^

    Were are you getting this info?

    Inu is Dog and dog only.

    "Yasha" Is forest spirit.

    Incidently, his name does not mean "female dog-demon" like many people beleive. Rumiko Takahashi explained in an interview that the meaning of his name broke down as dog (inu) and forest spirit (yasha). =3

    I don't know, I remember that tenchi muyo incedently had 2 meanings one of which read tenchi upside down or soemhting like that. Weird things like that can happen.

    Okay, I'm pretty sure his name doesn't mean "Dog Female Demon..." and I know it doesn't. It means "dog tree spirit." (at least, that's what I read in an interview.)
    Also, it depends on how you broke it up...if you took an english-japanese dictionary to break up his name...you did it the wrong way. The proper way to break up his name to find the proper meaning is to look at the kanji symbols. (you know, those crazy letters and characters) Inuyasha's name consists of three different kanji characters...so find out what the characters mean and you'll get the meaning of his name...probably...watch me be wrong!

    A lesson in reading through a thread before replying to it. I did this already. And just because I think I should be quoted more, I'll quote myself.

    http://www.nuthatch.com/kanji/demo/53c9.html

    Figure out where the female demon comes from there.
    Not being fully well-versed in Japanese, I still can only speculate exactly what it means.

    The first Kanji being dog, that's well accepted.
    The second one is night or darkness
    The third one is fork in the road.

    I think it's not unreasonable to say that the last two may mean to hint at half-demon. Darkness + Fork or split? That sounds like the closest to me.

    So, why in all the reasoning of the world would they name the main Character of the show "Dog Female Demon."

    Why not name it Demonic B-Word?

    I ask you, oh brave followers of japanese trends, explain it to the world!
    actually the japanese word of yasha can be called demon and not called female demon. i just read of some dictionaries inu yasha it mean dog demon. ^^;

    Alright, while not normally a defender of Inu-yasha, I think the whole "Takahashi dropped the ball and named her character as a female" thing is stupid.

    I'm no speaker of the Japanese, but I do know this much: Combinations of Kanji do not literally translate to English. Many combinations on kanji result in concepts that don't at all seem to apply to their direct translations. The thought that you, based on a dictionary are better able to understand a foreign word’s meaning than a native speaker like Takahashi is just stupid.

    And also...

    Yes they do. That's what Kanji is. The issue here is that the people weren't translating from the Kanji.

    I guess I missed that part.

    But my point was something more along the lines of Dog-Darkness-Fork-in-the-road is a literal translation of the Kanji, but not accually a usable translation. Or something. I was mostly mad at the fact they thought that they had one-upped a native speaker of the language.
