IJN Ship Names and Nomenclature

Once again Jeff Donahoo stuns with this fantastic display of tenacity. He has put together the names for each ship in each class, what the names mean and the Japanese characters that make up each name. He has also broken down each name into two different style of writing: Katakana and Hiragana.

Below are the type of ships; those that are completed appear in blue:

Aircraft Carriers       Battleships       Cruisers       Destroyers
