I'm trying to create a name for a fictional 'kami' or spirit for a story and I am struggling with developing it's name. I don't want to create a name for it and then have it mean something totally ridiculous or just not make any sense. I originally posted this in the world building stack exchange, but they told me to post here.
The world is vaguely based on Japan, but it's a fantasy world not a literal representation of Japan, but all the characters have Japanese names. For the other characters I've stuck to traditional names, but for my spirit characters I wanted something a bit more unique.
(Obviously a god can't just be named the Japanese equivalent of 'bob' or something.$
I have several of these characters, so I will need to really understand how to create names for them in the future, not just this one. However, to start with: the first is a Kami that is the manifestation of 'Truth.' I'm trying to create a name for it that has a meaning like 'Truth Seeing Deity' or maybe 'One Who Sees Truth' or something similar.
The 'idea' for the name is based off the name of the shinto kami Omoikane,(思兼 or 思金) whose name I believe means 'Thought Combining Deity.' Omoi meaning 'thought' and Kane coming from the verb 'to combine?' I would like something like this, so maybe using the verb 'to see' and the noun for truth?
Something like Mi (見) and Shin (真)? So Mishin? Would that be right or does that make no sense?
I have very little knowledge of the language, and unfortunately all the research I've done has just confused me further. I'd really appreciate any help I can get, thanks!
