Kanji and meanings of KYOJURO’s name

I’ll explain Rengoku Kyojuro’s first name in this article.

Kanji letters in his name don’t have strong, but cute and auspicious impressions. Let’s see the meaning of each character!


Kyo written in kanji

KYO means apricot. This is not a kanji character that gives any strong impression. It’s generally used especially for girl name.

But… the color of apricot is red and yellow. Don’t you think it’s completely the same as Rengoku Kyojuro’s hair color?

Looks like Kyojuro’s hair color!

This is one of the most festive and lucky character in Japan. It originally means longevity. But his fate was… You can see it in Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen train.


RO means men and it’s frequently used for boy names. Tanjiro also has this letter for his RO.

    Thank you so much for writing an analysis of his name! I especially enjoyed this quote you wrote:

    “Kanji letters in his name don’t have strong, but cute and auspicious impressions.”

    Honestly, I nearly cried because of the “gap moe” impression I got from your description. 🥺💕 I love his character even more knowing that 杏 is used for girl names. 🍑✨ Thank you again for sharing your knowledge with us!
