    Not sure of the kanji, but the most unusual name that I have come across here while living in Japan was なまえ, the guys last/family name was namae.

    Namae-san. Can you image the trouble he had as a kid?

    I don't know the characters, but ages ago when I was working in the office of a Business English school, there was a client w/ the last name of Kakusaka, which always generated an interesting giggle amongst the English teachers.
