Abstract

Names are personal attributes that have a function in identifying someone. There are many things that are considered, one of which is cultural relations as the birth identity of the child. In Japanese culture and Balinese culture, there are special words for naming children based on birth order. The findings of this research are the naming of the Balinese community based on natural phenomena or events at birth, name as birth order, names as gender identity, name to refer to the caste system, and name as parent's expectation for the child. A similar phenomenon also occurs in Japanese society. Japanese people write their names in kanji. Japanese names generally consist of two names; surname in front, followed by name self. that Name shows the family's hopes for the child. The uniqueness is reflected in the naming in Japan. In the mention of birth order is only devoted to boys known as haikoumei (輩 行 名). The influence of globalization also affects the naming of the Japanese community and also the Balinese.
