Asia is filled with so many cultural wonder and beauty. For parents looking to pay tribute to the Asian heritage or for parents who just appreciated the values, ideas, and people look no further. We've put together a list of beautiful Asian baby names that are beginning to make their way to the States.
Many Asian baby names are almost like music. They roll smoothly off the tongue, like the name Ishani for example, or Bodhi, which is getting a lot of attention in the U. Asia is the earth's largest and most populated continent.
It's also the most diverse. It's the birthplace of all of the world's major religions and has some of the most drastic climatic extremes. Asia has been home to spirituality, philosophy, adventure, and solace for centuries. Why wouldn't we steal their baby names? Our friends to the east have given us a wide array of colorful and multicultural names that might sound a little bit different at first, but are sure to get some compliments.
These names spanning all across Asia perfect for parents looking for something exotic and unique in the States. Here are 25 baby names from Asia that are making their way over to the US. Bodhi was imported onto the American popularity list in and quickly rose to last year. Bodhi is Sanskrit for "awakening, enlightenment. The Bodhi tree is a type of fig tree also associated with Buddhism. Bodhi has now made it to the top and is expected to continue to rise, maybe as the new and improved Brody.
Unlike Bodhi, Indra has never been seen on the American popularity list. This moniker is actually traditionally used for boys, but fares far better for baby girls in America. Indra is Sanskrit for "possessing drops of rain. In Buddhism, Indra was the guardian deity and the king of the highest heaven. Indra was the name of a character on the CW Show The Unlike the first two names on our list, India has spent a few years on the American list, though it struggled to hold a spot.

Ronin made its way to the American list back in and has been slowly creeping toward the top since.
Sitting at today, Ronin is one of the newest tough guy names that is expected to keep climbing. Ronan is a spelling variation of Ronan, which is also doing well in the U. These monikers are Celtic, however, the Ronin spelling is also the name of an ancient Japanese renegade samari, making it even cooler and appreciated by history buffs.
Ronin is also a character in a Marvel comic and the name of a character in the animated movie, Epic and the movie 47 Ronin. Ringo is definitely more of an offbeat choice in the States, though it isn't without its charm. This moniker has never been on the American list, but, along with several other Asia names, it stands a chance to appear soon.
Ringo is Japanese for "apple" and can also be considered an English nickname. A memorable Ringo was The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, who was born Richard, but given the name Ringo because of the of rings he wore. Ringo may be a little more outlandish, but with the rise of nickname names, there's no reason it can't become a trend too. Most of us associate this Japanese name with the one and only Yoko Ono. Though this moniker is very prominent in Japan, in America, "Ono" might as well be "Uno. Yoko is Japanese for "good girl.

Just like Kai, Tai is a unisex moniker that perfectly fits either gender, however this one is a little bit fresher in America. It has never reached the American list, though it is popular in it's native country, China. Tai is Chinese for "great extreme" and is used as an equivalent for "too much.
Tai was historically used as a boy's name in China, but in the States it imports well for either gender. We might just see this one catch up to Kai soon! Kane is actually a very multicultural name with a variety of different origins that might intrigue American parents.
It appeared on the American list in and was sporadically on and off again since. Today, Kane is ranked , it's highest ranking ever.

This Japanese moniker is a new and refreshing take on the top , Nora. Nori has never been on the American list, despite its popularity in Japan. In Japanese culture it is used as both a girl's and boy's name, though it would be a little more feminine in the States. Nori has two different meanings, one being "seaweed" and the other "doctrine. This moniker would have no problem assimilating in America. It's a perfect alternative to the popular Rory and Nora. Sakura, pronounced sa-koo-rah, is another pretty Japanese name that has yet to be featured on the American popularity list.
This moniker's meaning and exotic sound makes a perfect choice to bring over to the States. Sakura is Japanese for "cherry blossom. Sakura has been the name of several Japanese models and pop stars. It was also used for several anime characters and female ninjas. This baby boy moniker is perfect for a winter baby boy. Yukio, similar sounding to the Peter Pan spinoff, Hook's Rufio, but with a colder meaning. This moniker has never been in the American top , but with its nickname sound could very well appear soon.
Yukio is Japanese for "snow boy. Yukio was a character in The Wolverine and Yukio Mishima was a writer from the s through the s. This rare "Y" name is an adorable choice for a baby this winter!
