Names Project
List of students' kanji names
Bill Pellowe's students in Japan wrote English explanations of the meanings of their Japanese names. All of the kanji is given in caligraphy-style images. Their names are written vertically, with the kanji of the family name on top, in the traditional Japanese style.
