Sister is Sakura smile

We love Taiga (it makes us think of the forest) so it goes well with his sister's name. Have always loved Yoshi though.

Which would you pick? Thank you!

Neither. Sorry.

I prefer Yoshi. Taiga looks like a creative spelling of Tiger.

Moosieloo Sat 11-Feb-17 23:08:27


Neither isn't an option... These are our final 2 hmm

I assume that there is Japanese heritage?

LotisBlue Sat 11-Feb-17 23:09:41

Yoshi is a dinosaur in the Mario games to me

How do you pronounce taiga?

Heratnumber7 Sat 11-Feb-17 23:09:45

What nationality are you? Isn't Yoshi a kind of cartoon creature?

Sunflower1985 Sat 11-Feb-17 23:10:33

Yoshi. I love Japanese names.

Moosieloo Sat 11-Feb-17 23:10:47

He is Japanese smile as are we!

I love Yoshi! Am assuming the family has Japanese heritage?

Wadingthroughsoup Sat 11-Feb-17 23:11:11

Oooh, crossed posts!

Heratnumber7 Sat 11-Feb-17 23:11:22

Thought so

HoratioNightboy Sat 11-Feb-17 23:12:08

I love Yoshi as it makes me think of the mighty Toranaga in Shōgun. Taiga is nice too.

Heratnumber7 Sat 11-Feb-17 23:12:56

You should probably ask Japanese people's opinion. Neither sound right to the anglo saxon ear. Where do you live?

Moosieloo Sat 11-Feb-17 23:13:20

Taiga is said how it looks smile we are so torn. We think they are both beautiful. Thank you for your answers!

namechange20050 Sat 11-Feb-17 23:13:40

Sakura is a beautiful name & I think yoshi goes very well smile

Moosieloo Sat 11-Feb-17 23:14:12

We live in Surrey.

Cagliostro Sat 11-Feb-17 23:14:13

I love both but I don't think Yoshi is a good idea here really, as it will always be associated with Mario.

I LOVE Taiga (as does DD - favourite anime character I think?) and Sakura.

I wish I could use Japanese names. DD wants me to have a baby called Takumi. smile

Moosieloo Sat 11-Feb-17 23:15:24

Thank you @namechange20050 we knew that would be her name from day 1 smile

Japanese names are beautiful. I taught English to some lovely Japanese girls many years ago and they all had gorgeous names. My favourites were Yumi (of which there were loads!), Maiko, Sayuri and Yuki.

Wadingthroughsoup Sat 11-Feb-17 23:30:38

Sakura is beautiful. Not one I've heard before but really lovely.

LovingLola Sat 11-Feb-17 23:32:31

Moosieloo - I want to apologise to you. I posted without thinking and never considered that you were Japanese. I am sorry for being so crass.

OneWithTheForce Sat 11-Feb-17 23:32:54

You should probably ask Japanese people's opinion.

Fucking hell! Like there are only English people on MN? hmm

IamAporcupine Sat 11-Feb-17 23:34:02

I work with a Yoshi smile
I think it goes well with Sakura too

OneWithTheForce Sat 11-Feb-17 23:34:34

I prefer Taiga. What does Sakura mean? We have a brand of product in my work that is called Sakura.
