I don't know about you guys, but most any name in Japanese sounds cool to me. (unlike in English, where you have really awkward- sounding names). Japanese names are cute, catchy, and they roll right off of your tongue. But out of curiosity, what are your favorite character names? For example, if you were writing a manga or creating an anime, what names would you give your leads?
For a girl, I like the name Hikari best. But that could change tomorrow. I also like the name Kaede (which I believe means Maple in english, but Kaede sounds much prettier, ne?)
For a boy, I like the name Kei best, or even Hikaru (the "male version" of Hikari). But again, this could also change tomorrow ^.^
Ironically, Hikari and Kei are the leads in the S.A manga...go figure.
How about you guys???
