Hello, I am new here, but this topic interested me. I have read that Nanashi means 'no name' or 'nameless' and that 'ko' means child (usually a girl) but would Nanashiko be a socially acceptable name? Also, I have heard Nanashiko being used as 'step child' was this person just mistaken?

Yes, Japanese names usually mean something. Japanese parents pay attention to both the meaning of the Kanji, and also the number of brush strokes used to create the Kanji. This is something of superstition or strange belief, that a certain number of brush strokes in the name can have an effect on the child's life and can bring good fortune.
because all Kanji and Kanji words came from China!Kanji words seems quite similar to Chinese words and most of the time they even have similar meanings
not all.Is it a must for all Japanese to have kanji in their names?

there're no kanji correspond to Elizabeth or Erizabesu,

"Haku" sounds like it would indicate an association with royalty rather than as an ateji character. Although what is the third one? Is it still used today? All told, something about relying on your profits or depending on your advantages....Originally posted by billiken
Once,100 years or more ago,the Japanese wrote Europeans' name in kanji mostly.
Those days, "Elizabeth" was written to be "依利薩伯.
