Japanese names meaning purple?

I’m looking for some purple themed Japanese girl names. Also pretty flower names.

Also: Would Umesaki be a realistic girls name?

Romaji, Kanji, and Hiragana/Katakana please.

  • Hi,

    there is an exact name that means purple. It’s Yukari (紫, ゆかり). Japanese often name the children after name of the colors, and especially purple is said to be a noble color, since traditionally purple has been used for decorations at temples or shrines, and for clothes of high-positioned Buddhist monks. I picked up some of other names related to purple color.

    紫織(Shiori, しおり):Shiori is a popular girls’ name. It’s a beautiful name. 織(ori) means textile and very often used for girls names.

    紫苑(Shion, しおん): means aster. It’s a purple flower and the kanji for purple is contained.

    紫乃(Shino, しの): 乃(no) is also often used for girls name and it does not really have a meaning..it’s kind of a suffix. With 乃 at the end of the name, the name sounds and looks traditional and classical, in a good way.

    Other names that reminds of the purple color

    菖蒲(Ayame, あやめ):means iris. It’s a purple flower.

    菫(Sumire, すみれ):means violet flower.

    And there are lots of flower/plant names for girls!

    桜(Sakura, さくら): cherry blossom

    桃(Momo, もも): peach

    楓(Kaede, かえで):maple

    梓(Azusa, あずさ):Japanese birch

    茜(Akane, あかね):rubia

    葵(Aoi, あおい):mallow

    蘭(Ran, らん):orchid

    蓮(Ren, れん):lotus

    杏(Ann, あん):apricot

    藍(Ai、あい):indigo

    柚(Yuzu, ゆず):Japanese citrus

    椿(Tsubaki, つばき):camellia

    百合(Yuri, ゆり):lily

    花梨(Karin, かりん):quince

    桔梗(Kikyo, ききょう):balloonflower

    茉莉花(Marika, まりか):jasmine

    向日葵(Himawari, ひまわり):sunflower

    梢(Kozue, こずえ):treetop

    "Umesaki" as you mentioned cannot be a given name. It’s definitely a surname. As a surname I think it’s fairly realistic. (should be 梅崎 for kanji)

    Hope it helps!

  • Thanks to Ayumi who have answered you this, already.

    Purple was my favourite colour and I love more was the pinkish purple that I’m obssesed with it that I want a kimono to have this kawaii colour like that.
