"Yoshidome" surname meaning - 05-29-2018, 04:07 AM


I was hoping someone could help me with the kanji for the last name "Yoshidome."

I've looked it up and come across 2 frequent answers: 吉留 and 吉止.

Is either one more common for a surname? I've read that 吉留 is also a place name.

And of course, I understand that kanji can have multiple similar (or different!) meanings, so if someone were to choose this surname, is there a specific meaning they'd be trying to convey?

Thank you very much for any help you can offer!
