Go to the yahoo search engine and type in 20,000 names from around the world. They have English, Germany, Chinese, French, and Japanese name. And it even tells you what they mean. It's a really good website, you should take a look at it.Source(s): Me ^_^!

I'm a military fiction author and feature Japanese characters in my books. I have a few files with a big list of Japanese names that I randomly select from to create character names. If you'd like, I could send it to you.

Well, for last names, you could always use Wu and common names like that, and for first names, you don't need Japanese names. A lot of descendants use modern english names, too. unless they live in the very heart of japan.
