Comments and insights on the name Inuyasha: | Edit

Meaning well but scary when intended, so in truth always looks just, like a Dog.
Names were called 'oriental' more particularly for needing to read back and forth to see the word, and it IS read backwards but this name '犬矢孫' tells you it's shot one way, and picking up an arrow to fire into the next direction isn't, actually doing it the other way.

Meanings and history of the name Inuyasha: | Edit

The kanji was 犬矢孫 which was dog diving 'like a fired arrow, dart' through into descendants, like MAD though, an eternal dog warrior or moves like a demon? Dog demon, but Goku god. It also means that the kanji is pinge, pin'd, you only say it one way, and not 'yashainu' Once the arrow is fired, and the aim?
