Meanings & Background
HIMAWARI is an irregular reading. But of course, each kanji symbol has a meaning and makes the whole meaning for “sunflower”.
Let me explain what each letter stands for!
The first letter = go toward
The second one = sun
The third one = follow the sun, turn one’s face toward the sun
The word HIMAWARI consists of two parts, HI + MAWARI.
HI is “sun” and MAWARI is a variant for the Japanese verb MAWARU that means “rotate” and “spin”.
The Japanese name of a sunflower comes from “a flower that following the sun”. Suitable characters for the meaning were chosen later!
It gives bright, positive, cheerful, and active impressions. Sometimes used for the first name for girls.
