Mizu is water. So SHIMIZU means pure water, clear water. This is one of the most common family names in Japan and you’ll meet many Shimizu san when you come to Japan.

KIYO

This kanji means crystal clear, no hesitation. Every kanji of Shimizu Kiyoko’s name has sharp and cool impressions and I think it matches her personality well.

Actually, there’s a scene in which Yamamoto Taketora hears Kiyoko’s name and says “Wow! Her name describes herself!”
