Japanese is the language spoken on the island of Japan and in Japanese communities all over the world, by over 120 million people. Japanese is an agglutinative language which means it has a relatively small sound inventory, and a lexically significant pitch-accent system. Essentially Japanese has fewer sound combinations than English for example, but the meaning of words depends on the pitch during pronunciation of words. This is partly why Japanese may be a bit difficult to adults learning it as a second language if they are unfamiliar with such a language. Japanese baby names are often exotic sounding and very unique. Baby Name Network is a great place to start searching for your Japanese baby name and name meaning.
