Naruto was one of the first anime series that the majority of anime fans saw. Naruto holds a special place in the hearts of anime fans because it was the first anime. One of these fans is Jamesey Bolivar Maribojo, a 29-year-old Filipino who was inspired by Naruto’s hard work.
Maribojo had his first child in June 2020, and he named him Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze. “At first, hardly one thought that was his full name because I continued referring to him as Naruto.” Many people asked me whether it was his true name.” Maribojo told to Esquire Mag.
Why did he choose the name Naruto for his son? “I’ve been an avid fan of the anime since the beginning,” Maribojo explains. If you’re familiar with Naruto: Shippuden, you’ll know that the plot revolves around a boy who grew up without a family. As a single parent, I am responsible for my son at all times. But before his mother and I divorced, we settled on the name Naruto.”
“But I was not pleased with just naming him ‘Naruto,'” he says of why he gave his baby the long name “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze.” I used Naruto’s mother’s surname, Kushina Uzumaki, and his father’s surname, Minato Namikaze. Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze P. Maribojo became the name of my son.”
His family was opposed to him naming the child after an anime character. “They weren’t pleased. They became angry. They claim he will struggle to write his name and will be bullied. But they couldn’t do anything,” said Maribojo.
The plot thickens as Mariobojo prepares to name his second child after Naruto’s nemesis, Sasuke Uchiha. However, given the Uchiha clan’s past, I would advise against calling his second child Sasuke.
The Naruto anime is based on Masashi Kishimoto’s Japanese manga series of the same name. The manga series was serialised in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1999 to 2014. The manga was picked up by Studio Pierrot for an anime adaptation. Naruto anime contains 220 episodes, while Naruto Shippuden has 500.
