Kira is Russian, derived from Greek name Cyrus which means Lord.
I couldn't find Machiko, but Michiko, also a feminine name, means beautiful wise child, which could be fortunate because being beautiful and wise is very fortunate. ^^

Kira in Japanese means "sparkling". But it`s a bit like naming your child "Glitter" in English. It is okay, I guess, but it is a weak as a name. (edit to add: It is a name though, not just a word.)

With most Japanese names, what it means really has to do with how you write it. There are usually tons of ways to write a single name. The sounds alone don`t have any meaning - it all has to do with the Kanji used in writing the name.

Sachiko can mean many different things, as can Machiko (they`re both normal names with many different writings.) Recently names ending with "ko" are sort of falling out of favor because they sound really traditional, and a bit old. Whether that is a good or bad thing really depends on your personal feelings. I would compare them to names like "Martha". Sort of popular for middle aged women? Not as old sounding as "Ethel" or "Gertrude", but not young sounding either.

(And I again apologize for sounding rude. I really did not mean to at all. I`m not a rude person, and I didn`t intend to write that way. As I said, this really is just the way I write.)


Make the move!

I just wanted to make a point, that this forum topic is not only for people who are actually raising children in Japan.
It even says on the JapanForum.com home where it introduces this topic, that it is for people who are raising, thinking of raising, or are just curious of raising children in Japan.
I am curious, I just wanted to clarify. ^^

That`s okay. I see that now. But if you read the first few posts, it just sounds like you wanted to raise a Japanese child... But you didn`t say anything at all about it being in Japan. Also, you didn`t ask any questions.

So it didn`t really look good to my friends. (One has said she will register, but she really is rude sometimes, and means it, so beware!)

I don't care.
I can hold my own against rude people.
Rude people, in the end, will get nowhere.
But anyways, back to the subject, do you know how schools in Osaka are?
