I've seen this question on Yahoo and couldn't figure out what とした exactly meant.


  • If you really named your child "Raito", would the government recognize it? – Dav7n Sep 6 '17 at 21:11
  • @Dav7n And how do you think とした contributes to your translation? – broccoli forest Sep 8 '17 at 3:34

    AをBとする means to make A B. So, 名前を月とする means to make his name 月. – user4092 Sep 10 '17 at 15:22



~とした =~と した(”する”の過去形)


した=did, made, decided

If I decided my child's name as "月 (the pronunciation of it is raito) ," would the authority admit the name?

    "実際に自分の子供 " -- でも、原文は「実際に自分の子供 」ですよね・・ – Chocolate Sep 8 '17 at 2:27
  • 原文の「に」はtypoと解釈しました。その方が、「とした」の説明が分かりやすいだろうと思ったからです。 – user1118 Sep 8 '17 at 5:15
