Character Name Origins

Welcome to our series of articles dedicated to the Name Origins and meanings in Sailor Moon! Here we try to determine the puns and meanings behind the names in Sailor Moon, ranging from the main characters all the way to the monsters of the day (each and every single one of them!) This information is based on canonical evidence and an understanding of the Japanese language, but it should not be regarded as the true intentions of Naoko Takeuchi, directors or writers of the anime and musicals. Please feel free to send us comments or questions about these pages either through email or our tumblr!
