Kanji and meanings of Fusiguro’s name
Fushiguro’s family name is related to a plant like other characters in Jujutsu Kaisen.
As for his first name Megumi, there’s a scene that he make mention of his name. You can know the background of this scene more deeply if you learn the meaning of “Megumi”.
What is it? Let’s see it together!
The first kanji means to drop or lower something and the second one does black.
But I think this “Fushiguro” word shows a plant name because some characters in Jujutsu Kaisen have plant-derived names.
Fushiguro is Silene firma that belongs in Caryophyllaceae. Caryophyllaceous plants generally have lovely flowers, but the Fushigro flower is tiny and somber. Its existence is very modest and quiet, like the Fushiguro family under the Zenin family.
The kanji MEGUMI is full of good meanings and one of the most popular kanji for names in Japan.
- blessing or gift from the heaven and nature
- blessed, gifted, have a lot of luck
- grant favor
In Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapter 73, Fushiguro’s dad touch on his son’s name “Megumi” and says it’s him who gave that name to Fushiguro.
The name “Megumi” can be used both for boys and girls, but it’s mostly given to girls. As for the fact, in chapter 9, there’s a scene that Fushiguro says about his dad “a man who named me Megumi, not even knowing my gender”.
This episode implies that his father Fushiguro Toji had no interest in his baby.
