(Easy to use, hopefully) More curiosity than anything else. Since the kanji seem to be important and I don't have that, I will not worry about it. I read in the Japanese Miscellany that all the Japanese names have a meaning and I was curious. I am looking for a flower or plant name (if I like to looks of the flower or plant) to use with a clan name but I am in no hurry. I'm too new to the study of Japanese medieval culture to hurry.
