The description of Japanese Names Free Dictionary

Baffled by that name on a Japanese business card? Can't figure out the names in a Japanese newspaper or book? Japanese names can be very hard to figure out, even for experienced linguists. Names often use uncommon Kanji or the Kanji are pronounced in ways you can't find in a standard dictionary. And there can be dozens of different ways to write common names, like the girl's name “Asuka” for example.

The full version of this dictionary, with over 740,000 names, is an essential tool for Japanese linguists. This trial version contains 10,000 randomly-selected names of both Japanese and foreign people, places, literary works, train stations, companies, products and organizations so that you can try it out. The dictionary can be searched with Kanji, Kana or English and automatically detects which is being used. Results are displayed instantly as you type and are always shown in Kanji (if there is a Kanji spelling), Kana and Romanized English.

But what about those uncommon Kanji used in names? The dictionary includes our unique built-in visual Kanji Keyboard. The keyboard works seamlessly with your favorite Japanese keyboard and is completely visual – no stroke counting, no need to guess how the Kanji is pronounced. Just pick out which visual elements are in the Kanji. As you touch each element, the keyboard adapts to show you only the minimum set of elements that are needed next. Most unknown Kanji can be found by touching only 1 – 3 elements. By far the fastest and easiest way to find unknown Kanji.

Dictionary entries can be tagged for future reference with bookmarks. Bookmark categories can be entered on the fly by creating tags.
