My family name MUSHA (武者) means samurai, or to translate it literally, "brave one". My given name, Akinori (晶紀) was named after two kanji that appear in a phrase "shine in the next (21st) century", which my parents hoped I would.
Years passed we entered a new millennium, and I was lucky enough to have a son of my own. I named him after the family story in the hope that he will pioneer the new century himself even after I get dim.
Feel free to add me if you want to talk or whatever.
