Yumiko and Yaron


Yumiko is a Japanese name meaning “archery bow” (yumi) and “child” (ko), or “reason” (yu), “beautiful” (mi), and “child” (ko). Like many Japanese and Chinese names, the meaning depends upon the characters with which it’s written.

Yaron is a modern Hebrew name meaning “to sing.” I fell in love with the name the moment I saw it, and used it for one of the characters of the currently youngest generation in my Atlantic City books.
