Naruto Name Meanings

Post by Himitsu »

Does anyone know what do the names in the Naruto anime mean? I know so far that 'Sakura' means 'cherry blossom', 'Kakashi' means 'scarecrow' (which is really amusing I must say :mrgreen: ), 'Gaara' means 'a self-loving carnage' but what do other names mean, for example Sasuke's?

Sasuke means Ninja Warrior or something, cause in the show 'Ninja Wariror' the narrorator guy that speaks Japanese says 'Sasuke' and the subtitles say 'Ninja Warrior'

Uh, the show I think you're talking about was originally called "Sasuke" but is known as "Ninja Warrior" in the U.S. That doesn't necessarily mean that the name Sasuke means ninja warrior.
I don't know what Sasuke means, I just know he was named after Sarutobi Sasuke.

Yes, that comment was a bit awkward and vague.
