I gathered a list of fragments below.
- Ano-, Aki-
- Ishi-, -inu-, Ino-
- -kami-(-gami), kawa, Kita-, Kuro-, -ko-, Kono-, Komi-, -kichi
- Mi-, -michi, -mori-, -mura-
- -Naga-, Naka-, Negi-, -neko-
- -tachi, -tama-
- -ya-, -yama-, yaki, -yako, -yuka-, yuki, Yo-
From the fragments, I composed a list of names.
- Tamaya, Kayama, Miyama, Mitayama, Kuroyama, Konoyama, Kitayama, Kamiyama, Kuniyama, Nakayama, Hiroyama, Ishiyama, Inuyama, Usayama, Kuniyama, Moriyama, Murayama, Negiyama, Oyama
- Komichi, Kuromichi, Anomich, Inumichi, Sonomich, Kitamichi, Nekomichi, Nakamich(中道), Kunomich
- Nakamura, Kitamura, Negimura, Yukimura
- Yamaneko, Morineko
- Kitagami, Nekogami, Inugami, Yamagami
Somehow, a lot of names that I came up with end in such suffixes as -yama, -michi, -mura, and -gami. However, almost all nice names were used by people, companies, and fictional characters. I'm a bit afraid of becoming one of many people who have the same name.
How can I better find male japanese names that are rarely used and sound nice in both english and japanese?
