Name meaning of Demon Slayer Giyu

What does Tomioka Giyu’s name mean in Japanese?


TOMIOKA is a common family name in Japan. Giyu’s GI means “the right way as a person” and YU is “brave”. I think his name gives serious and diligent impressions.

Now I’ll explain what each kanji symbol stands for!

TOMI – wealth

Tomi written in kanji

TOMI means wealth and rich. This kanji is commonly used for Japanese family names and you will see other names including TOMI, like Tomita, Tomiya, and Tominaga.

OKA – hill

Oka written in kanji

OKA means a hill. This is also a common character for Japanese family names. The name Tomioka is a very normal one for a Demon Slayer’s character as most of the main characters have eccentric and rare names.

GI – right way

Gi written in kanji

This character represents the right way as a person, a stance of acting reasonably with no personal greed.

YU – brave

Yu written in kanji

YU means brave and courage.

Both of the kanji characters in Giyu’s name have serious and upstanding meanings. I think it’s an eligible name for a member of the Kisatutai (the demon slayer corps) ⚔
