    I'm not even gone that far but looking at names already a bit unusual but i love Japanese names and meanings of names. So far.....

    Girl--Sakura which means Cherry Blossom

    Boy--Ryu which means dragon

    Also I love Rurie for a boy and Summer for a girl, my boyfriend is Irish and I melt when he says Rurie :oops:

    What does everyone think? I dont think they are too hard to spell or prenounce but Im not sure...

    Sakura is nice and straightforward enough to pronounce.

    Ryu I'm not keen on as I can't seem to decide which way to pronounce it and its not feeling good either way I try.

    Rurie I think is said like Rory? Its a good name, but I prefer the English spelling if in England as maybe otherwise it'd be confusing for people.

    I tend to prefer traditional spellings of names over newer variations as otherwise people end up having to be corrected of spelling or maybe even pronounce it differently.

    Sakura's nice :D What about Mei? (pronounced May)
    I heard it on another forum, someone's Japenese mother was called it.

    One of my sons friends is called Rurie, but he spells it something like Ruaridh. I don't know how he'll ever learn to spell it cos I can't :lol:

    :D Yeh the English Rurie is prenounced and said "Rory" the Irish way is "Rur-ree"

    Muppetmummy- Yeh hehe thats the other Irish spelling but I'm going along the lines of if I cant spell it then I cant call my kiddy it haha.

    I had the same problem with Ryu I say "Roo" my boyfriend says "Ry-u" its probley a no just because of that couldnt have us calling him two names hehe.

    Ryu makes me think of the old Street Fighter II / Mortal Kombat games on the SNES - there was a character called Ryu in one of them!! :D
