Shin'ichi or Shinichi is a very common masculine Japanese given name. Shin and ichi are separated and it is pronounced [ɕiɴitɕi].

Possible writings[edit]

Different kanji that are pronounced "shin" (しん?) are combined with the kanji for "one" ( ichi?, いち)" to give different names:

  • 真一, "true, one"
  • 信一, "belief, one"
  • 伸一, "extend, one"
  • 進一, "progress, one"
  • 新一, "new, one"
  • 慎一, "humility, one"
  • 晋一, "advance, one"
  • 紳一, "gentleman, one"
  • 鎮一, "tranquilize, one"
  • 愼一, "care, one"

The names share the same furigana: しんいち.
