I can’t really tell you bc honestly I have no idea if I’m saying them correctly.  Here are my guesses… Sorry if I’m completely off….

Chihiro — Chi-Hero

Runa/Luna — Run-ah / Luna (when you out these together, I assume it is Roo-na, but alone I wouldn’t have guessed that

Kaede — Kade

Hotaru — Hot-tar-ooo

Akane — Ah-Kane

Hana — Hah-na

Hikari — Heh-car-ie

Mirai — Mear-I

Sora — Sore-ah

Tsubasa — Sue-Bassa

Hikaru — Heh-car-oo

Eiji — E-Jee

Kenta — Kent-ah

Hiro — Hero

Yuuta — You-tah

 

Based off those pronunciations, I really like Luna, Hana, Sora, Kenta and Hikari.

Now when I see tsubasa, I think of kielbasa because it rhymes and is delicious.

I lived in Japan for a few years, and had friends stay with my family back when I went home to Canada. MY family had some troubles with things like Mikako, they’d say mee-kaw-koo. Or Akane = Aye-kaw-nee… <br />That could just be my weird family, though! Not sure if it’s intentional, but some cute anime girl names in there! 😉

Hiro would be one that as an American would be a choice that I would exclude based on the element that the name has a negative historical connotation to people who know the history of WW2.  I think that the others can be learned by your family….

I wouldn’t have guessed right on many of them but having seen the phonetic pronunciation,  I don’t see that any of them are that hard to say. And it would be even easier after having someone say it to one correctly.

What about Marino, Asumi, or Mayu?

I am unsure only about Kaede. Is it like K.D?

I wouldn’t worry about people being able to read them correctly. Once people here them orally, they will easily be able to pronounce them.
