What's In A Name?

I’m aware that names have special meaning and significance to them. Example, it is said that Abraham means “father of many” and Abraham did become the father of his people. David also means “beloved” and indeed, he’s loved by many.

But I didn’t know that even manga characters have special meaning to their names. Example, from the Japanese manga BLEACH, Ichigo Kurosaki’s name means “First Guardian” or “He who protects. (Now, it would be interesting to find out whether he really could protect the world from annihilation.) So then, if I were to choose a powerful name (like one for a superhero or manga character), I’d pick my name to be Jada Yagami. Jada because I love shades of green (jade) and Yagami from another Manga character. How about you, what would it be?

Want to learn more about manga characters? You may start by watching Bleach the Movie. It will be available in selected US movie theatres on June 11 and 12. Purchase of tickets maybe done online –by providing your zip code. Maybe it’s time to go and check it out.
