Shota

Shota is a Japanese male name, a variant transcription of Shouta, with a variety of meanings depending on the kanji used:

  • sho  “correct; justice; righteous” + ta 太 “plump, thick” (正太);
  • sho  “soar, fly” + ta 太 “plump, thick” (翔太);
  • sho 章 “chapter; section” + ta  “plump, thick” (章太);
  • sho  “leader, commander, general” + ta 太 “plump, thick” (将太);
  • sho 匠 “artisan, workman, carpenter” + ta  “many, much” (匠多)

There are other endings depending on the kanji used. Written in hiragana it’s しょうた.

Shota is also a Georgian male name; I’ve seen it listed as possibly being derived from Persian šâdi شادی (joy; happiness; rejoicing”. Shota Rustaveli (1160-1220) is a medieval Georgian poet, considered one of the most important in Georgian literature.
