An analysis of Gaara's name.
Kanji and Meaning
The image above depicts the three kanji of Gaara's name, the kana translation below ("ga a ra"), the phrase Gaara's name
is sourced from, and the romaji version of the same phrase.
The phrase Gaara's name is a pun on, "Ware wo aisuru shura", means "I am a self-loving carnage". This name was given to
Gaara by his mother, who wished not out of love but spite that her son might live on to torment the village that had caused
Read alone, the kanji say "Ware ai shura". "I love carnage", translated literally, or "I love death". This sums up the

Gaara doesn't have a last name, nor do any of his siblings or family (which is kind of weird, considering how important
he is in the series). However, he does address himself as 'Sabaku no Gaara', the kanji for 'sabaku' meaning 'sand waterfall'.
However, 'sabaku' does also mean 'desert', thus resulting in the more common title "Gaara of the Desert". In one of Gaara's
flashbacks from the anime, the kids that run from him call him "Suna no Gaara", or "Gaara of the Sand".
