Totoro is a gender-neutral name of Japanese origin. This name was made famous by Studio Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro, where Totoro is a giant, friendly forest spirit. His name derives from the word tororo, meaning “troll,” but he’s called Totoro throughout the film because of little Mei’s mispronunciation of tororo. Throughout the movie, Totoro helps Mei and her sister Satsuki when they need him the most, giving this name beautiful connotations of love and friendship. Why not pay tribute to one of Studio Ghibli’s best-loved movies by naming baby Totoro?
