Yagi Name Meaning
Japanese: ‘eight trees’; taken from a valley in Tajima (now part of Hyogo prefecture) by a branch of the ancient Kusakabe family, which descended from Emperor Nintoku (early 5th century). The name is also found in the Ryukyuan island of Amami, written with characters used phonetically. The name could also simply mean ‘goat’.
