Names (personal, company)
Japanese term or phrase:
This is a name of a person. I'm not sure if it is female or male. The client is unlikely to be able to find out for me. What would some possible readings for this be? (It was hard to search on Google since it's only one character...)

Thanks.

agree  rikariannon: I agree although the reference site isn't really that reliable. I checked couple of the names I knew the reading of and they came up differently. Plus there is usually only one possibility given, and most kanji have several potential 'name' readings.
