Kanji and meanings of Nanami Kento name

Jujutsu sorcerers are SHIT!

I love Nanamin’s character so much😆 Seems cool, but very devoted and reliable. Does his name mean diligent or cool like him? Let’s check it together!


Nanami written in kanji

Usually, the first kanji reads NANA and the second one reads UMI, but we don’t read this word NANAUMI but NANAMI. This is the special way of kanji reading.

NANA means seven and MI (UMI) means the sea. So NANAMI can mean Seven seas. Nanamin has Danish blood in his vein and I think this family name matches his background.


This is also one of special readings. We usually read the first kanji KEN and the second one HITO, but don’t make them KENHITO but KENTO.

KEN means to build. TO (HITO) means human.

The kanji KEN gives solid impression and I think it deserves Nanamin’s diligent character.

For your information: Nanamin’s voice actor is Tsuda Kenjiro and he has “KEN” character too. But his KEN uses another kanji that stands for health.

This is Tsuda Kenjiro and he’s a good guy!

    Hello, Junko-san! Firstly, thank you for this post! Nanami is my favorite character from JJK and I nenjoy learning more from him! I wanted to ask you, what could “Nanamin” mean? Yuuji-kun calls him like that so I was curious. Does it have something to do with his technique? Thank you so much for your hard work!

      Hi, Lulu-san! Thank you for your comment!
      Ahhhh! That’s a good question! The word Nanamin sounds very cute to us. The MIN doesn’t have any meaning but it’s a kind of baby language. Adding the N sound to the end of a word sound girly and babyish. Yuuji calls Nanami Nanamin in a very friendly way.
      But be cautious, it would be really rude if you do it to someone senior😅 Nanami accepts the nickname and I think that shows how mature he is!
