if it isn't any trouble, do you think you could translate the meaning of Kazui and also Ichika? I've seen like 5 different meanings now.
no problem, I was actually discussing these names with a friend elsewhere
一 勇 - Kazui written in Kanji and this is the correct Kanji that is used on the raws and the transcript by the way because I’ve also seen one name meaning for Kazui in the bleach tags but the post contained the wrong kanji characters.
一 has the meanings of ‘One’ / ‘Best [in]’ / ‘first’
勇 means bravery
Meaning: Brave one/Bravest ( lit: Best [in] Bravery so you could say 'best [in]’ + 'bravery’ = bravest)
It’s a fitting name!
苺花 - Ichika
苺 - Strawberry
花 - Flower
Meaning: lit. strawberry flower.
I think what’s most significant here is 'Strawberry’ and I think we can pinpoint reasons Renji and Rukia would give this name to their child.
Both are quite odd/unique names
