- Meanings and history of the name Ayaka
Like most Japanese names, Ayaka can be written with many different combinations of characters, each with their own meaning. The meaning of the name depends on the characters used to write it. Ayaka is generally a combination of two characters: one for "Aya" (also a very popular name in its own right) and one for the common feminine ending "-ka".
Common "Aya" characters mean 'coloring/hue', and 'patterned fabric/silk'.
Common "ka" characters mean 'flower', 'fragrance', or 'summer'.
From Japanese 彩 (aya) meaning "colour" combined with 花 (ka) or 華 (ka) which both mean "flower". Other kanji combinations are possible.
