The jinmeiyō kanji (人名用漢字) are a set of 983 kanji known as the "name kanji" in English. They are a supplementary set of characters which can be used in registered names, despite not being in the set of "commonly used characters" (jōyō kanji). As a rule, characters for registered names must be jōyō kanji, jinmeiyō kanji, katakana or hiragana (excluding hentaigana).

A ministerial decree of 1946 limited the number of "official" kanji to the 1850 tōyō kanji. Only kanji on this list were acceptable as registered names, despite the fact that it excluded many kanji frequently used in names up to that point. However, on May 25, 1951, the cabinet extended the set of characters usable as names by specifying the first 90 jinmeiyō kanji. 1946 was a common year starting on Tuesday. ... 1850 was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ...

Over the years, the Minister of Justice has increased the number of name kanji, and has a plan for further addition in response to requests from parents. As of September 27, 2004, there were 983 kanji authorized for the names of people. September 27 is the 270th day of the year (271st in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 95 days remaining. ... 2004 is a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


In Japan, name kanji are taught at the junior-high level, and mastery of the name kanji are required to achieve Level 2 of the Kanji kentei Japanese proficiency test. The kanji kentei (漢字検定, sometimes shortened to simply kanken), is a test of Chinese character ability. ...


Before September 27, 2004, there were 2232 government-designated jinmeiyō kanji used in personal and geographical names, with plans to increase this list by 578 kanji in the near future. This was the largest increase since World War II. The plan had not been without controversy, however. For example, the Chinese characters for "cancer", "hemorrhoids", "corpse" and "excrement", as well as parts of compound words (words created from two or more Chinese characters) meaning "curse", "prostitute", and "rape", are among the proposed additions to the list. This is because no measures were taken to determine the appropriateness of the kanji proposed, with the committee deciding that parents could make such decisions themselves. However, the government will seek input from the public before approving the list. (There is also some speculation that the "odd" kanji being added to the names list are being done so in an attempt to make a de-facto expansion of the Jōyō Kanji List, rather than with the serious idea that anyone will use them in names. The idea of reducing the number of kanji in use has been a politically contentious issue, with many conservatives believing that kanji are culturally Japanese and that people should use them frequently.)

June 11 2004

No addition to the jinmeiyō kanji was made on this date, but a plan was put forward that proposed 578 additions. It was proposed to the council on jinmeiyō kanji of the legislative council of the Ministry of Justice. The list included certain characters that were in strong demand by parents to use in their children's names, such as 苺 (Ichigo: "strawberry"), 遥 (Haruka, "distant"), 煌 (Akira, "scintillating"), 牙 (Kiba, "fang"). Many others were included not for their potential use in a name (as was noted) but rather for their frequency of use and the ease of reading and writing them: 糞 (Kuso, "excrement"), 呪 (Norou, "curse"), 屍 (Shikabane, "corpse"), 癌 (Gan, "cancer"). At this same council, it was decided to offer the chance until July 9, 2004 to propose characters to be included or excluded from the final report on the website of the Ministry of Justice. June 11 is the 162nd day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (163rd in leap years), with 203 days remaining. ... July 9 is the 190th day of the year (191st in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 175 days remaining. ...


July 23, 2004

No addition was made. After sharp protests, the council decided to withdraw nine characters of the 489 which had received requests for withdrawal. Those nine characters were: 糞 (see above), 呪 (see above), 屍 (see above), 癌 (see above), 姦 ( kashimashii "rape, seduction"), 淫 (midara, "obscene"), 怨 (urami, "resentment"), 痔 (shimogasa "haemarroids"), 妾 (sobame, "concubine"). July 23 is the 204th day (205th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, with 161 days remaining. ... 2004 is a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The 480 other characters still remain under consideration for withdrawal. One additional character was included, namely 掬 (kiku, "to draw up water with one's hands").


September 27 2004

488 characters and 205 variant forms were added, bringing the total number of the jinmeiyō kanji to 983.
