Languages of publication
Since the second half of the 19th century Japanese given names have undergone significant changes in their graphic and phonetic forms, morphological structure, and also in their meanings. This paper explores these various changes, focusing mainly on the relationship between the meanings of given names and the social attitudes, values and needs of that particular period, including the hopes and aspirations of the parents for their child, and also the influence of important contemporary events and personalities.
