    Talking Found out what "Coccoro" means

    The other day I drove past a restaurant called Kokoro Sushi. (I don't eat sushi, but was SO tempted to go in, just because of the name.)

    Anyway, it occurred to me that Coccoro/Kokoro probably means something in Japanese, since Combi is a Japanese company. I emailed the Combi rep to find out, and she said Coccoro means “Heart-felt, loved and cherished one.”

    Isn't that a great name for a car seat (especially that one), that, afterall, is intended to protect our loved and cherished ones? Better than "Momentum," that's for sure.

    I don't know enough about the intricacies of Japanese to know if Kokoro and Coccoro are the same word, just transliterated differently, but I'd guess that's a very cherished sushi restaurant, too.

    Re: Found out what "Coccoro" means

    Both Coccoro and Kokoro would be spelled こころ or こっころ in hiragana (I can't remember if it would have the 'double k' or not, it's been awhile since I took Japanese. Hiragana is the syllabic spelling of Japanese) so yes, it would be the same word.

    Neat! Makes more sense than some of the strange car seats names here in the U.S.

    Re: Found out what "Coccoro" means

    'Ko' as the first syllable specifically indicates a child or baby as well. "neko" is a cat, and "koneko" is a kitten.
    3 kids riding across in a Nissan Altima - how did that happen? Orion in a Britax Parkway, Alice RF in a Safety 1st Complete Air and Terran in a Graco Snugride 35!
