Welcome to Beyond Sakura and Hiroshi, a blog whose aims of this blog are to cover many of the names that exist in the country, ancient and modern, popular and rare, and also share lists of names with a variety of themes.
Please note that I will NOT be posting on this blog every day, rather, I will be posting 2 names on BSAH every 3 days for 6 days, interspersed by a list post, so with the 2 names being posted on a Monday, another 2 will be added on a Thursday and a list post on a Sunday etc. Also note that I will not be posting anything on this blog in the months of March, June, September and December.
If you have any thoughts about any of the names being posted on this blog or any general feedback or tips, it is highly encouraged to do just that as it will help me improve future content on this blog.
For more musings and ramblings on other name topics, my Twitter handle is @maybeitsdaijiro. My other website, Maybe it is Daijirō (aka Maks), from this point forward, will feature posts regarding my own naming research.
The list of sources that I used for this blog is included here. On this page is a pronunciation guide so you can get familiarised with the pronunciation of Standard Japanese and the way I transcribe pronunciations. A list of names that have been posted on BSAH is also included here, as well as a list of name lists being published.
Thank you for reading.
