  • "Well my parents named me Akira because they wanted to name me after Kira from The Dark Crystal, but they wanted something rare so I guess they just added an ?A? to the front. I grew up obsessed with the Japanese culture (despite being Caucasian and from the Deep South) I didn?t really enjoy my name though because they only used it when I was In trouble. Otherwise I was called Sunshine (my middle name). It was easier to pronounce, because most people called me ?Kira? or ?kiara? or ?Ak-eye-ra?. I had a teacher purposely call me ?Acura?. I?ve only met two others with that name, but with the spelling ?Akyra?." Nov. 20, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name, Akira! There are many names similar to mine, but I have only met three girls with my name. I often get complements about my name." May. 6, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Akira is our daughters name, which is actually a japanese boys name. Our daughter is half japanese and we wanted some tradition without being traditional. Be forewarned it gets pronounced wrong a lot - the worst so far is "acura" like the car! ugh. We love it - p.s. it means intelligent." Jul. 15, 2008: Report as inappropriate

Coincidentally, the actress playing her was called Akira Koizumi" Oct. 14, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am happy to hear the comments of Jeff and that they used the male name for their daughter. I think it is very cool. I have a puppy that I want to name Akira, thinking it would be pronounced A-Kear-A. I have gotten negative feedback by some about it only being male. Thanks Jeff I will now name my spaniel/retriever Akira proudly. Barb" Sep. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate
