Jinmei Kanji

In 1951, the Japanese government has announced 92 kanji characters as Jinmei kanji which are to be used just for naming. Since then, the list has been expanded several times and now includes 285 characters. Following the announcement, kanji characters which were included neither Joyo nor Jinmei kanji were not to be used for any naming.
