Firstly Im far too young to have children but I was recently thinking about what I would call my child if I ever had one, I really like the name "Akiro" for a boy or "Akira" for a girl. what do you think?

For some reason only the first line of that comment posted and the rest didn’t go through haha.

I basically said that yeah Akiro probably wouldn’t be a good idea because it’s quite easy to tell when a person’s name was made up by their parents. But then I was just wondering where you got the inspiration from as that could make a difference? If you got the inspiration from somewhere widely known then maybe people won’t interpret it that way but I’ve only heard of an ‘Akira’ in my lifetime and it was from an anime lmao

I like the name Akira because it has a nice ring to it... Akiro for a boy sounds a bit odd but its your descion.

Yep it is a bad idea if you ask me. I think the best names are names that have good connotations to em. They don’t have to be common but ones that are made up just make it seem like a parent is desperate for their kid to stand out you know? It also typically means you’re giving your kid a name with no meaning which isn’t particularly helpful. It sounds weird when i say it like that but the best example i can give is the name fortune. The first thing that comes to mind when you say fortune is probably gold, winning the lottery, luck - good things. If you have a son named fortune, then whenever people call his name, they’re literally hoping for (a) fortune. Names like that have good associations with them and given the choice i don’t see why you wouldn’t want your child’s name to not have good associations attached to it. You can’t exactly do that with the names you suggested but yeah that’s my reasoning

Is it Japanese? It sounds Japanese. Are you Japanese?

I wouldn't use it personally - it sounds like a manga character's name.

I once met a guy called Megatron. That was strange. He wasn't lying either, he showed me his bank card to prove it.

I’m shocked people are saying akiro isn’t a cute name I wonder if I’m pronouncing it wrong or it sounds uglier in a English accent.

No- too strong manga and anime connotations.
Akira is a famous Japanese manga based media franchise that includes: an animated movie, comic series, video games and plans for a television series & live action feature film.

It's a name I not come across in my job as a midwife but at the end of the day it's totally upto you what you call your children and no one else.



The name Akira is a girl's name of Japanese origin meaning "bright, intelligent". A popular Japanese name for both sexes that's migrated to the West because of its appearance in manga and video games



The name Akiro is a boy's name of Japanese origin meaning "bright boy". Akiro is well used in Japan
