My Daughter Will Be Named ERI

I decided that if I ever have a daughter, I’m going to name her Eri/Ellie. That is unless I marry someone by that name. In that case I’ll revert to one of the back up names I have circulating.

But anyways, the reasoning behind this? I’ve come across enough instances where I think the name Eri has been embodied the type of characteristics I would want my daughter to be associated with. of course there’s Kamei Eri (above). There’s the Southern All-Stars song Itoshi no Eri, which was so popular it was covered by the late Ray Charles. There’s Ellie from the Disney Pixar movie UP. And if you need one more reason, play the game Dead Space 2. I just like the way the female protagonist was portrayed in that game, which I won’t spoil.

So yeah, there’s my reasoning.

  1. Kamei said in an interview back when she had just joined Momusu that her father was a big Southern All Stars fan, who took the name from their Itoshi no Eri. I think that’s how I got to know SAS… Sounds like proven good reasoning.

  2. I wanted to call my daughter/son Jessie/James until Team Rocket (well the UK/American) version ruined it all!!!!

  3. Eri was always one of my favorite and I hope she’s doing well being treated for her skin problem in Texas by Dr. Liao.

    I’m willing to bet that in the future there will be an Eri and Sayumi group once Sayu gradutes…maybe Niigaki, And/or Takahashi ai, and/or Tanaka Reina will join then as well. I also wouldn’t Rule out a return by JunJun or LinLin in that group. But Sayu and Eri will definitely do something together.

  4. That’d be a great name, David. Nice fun fact about Ray Charles, btw. I didn’t know he did a cover of SAS. You know, apparently Mr. Charles was close friends with Wada Akiko. Recently, Atsushi from Exile performed several of Mr. Charles’ songs for her. It was a very touching moment. It’s really cool to know that Ray Charles had a close relationship with Japan’s people and culture.
