is that Wakizashi is not a name. Also, while Yoshi is arguably a name,
it would generally work better as part of a nanori such as Hideyoshi.
Finally, if your son intends to be part of the buke (military class),
he should have a middle name. These middle names usually
express birth order and possibly membership in one of the ancient
uji such as the Minamoto or Tachibana.
