Meaning:Wealth; Large rice paddy
Ota is generally considered to be a shorter alternative to the German masculine name Otto. By association, Ota shares its meaning of “wealth.” However, in Japanese, Ota literally translates to “large rice paddy,” and is a surname given to people belonging to a samurai clan known by the same moniker. If your little samurai claims ancestry to this proud tribe, you are welcome to bestow this name on them. It can surely foster a love for their heritage and history.
