Meaning & History
This Japanese surname is used as 藍染 with 藍 (ran, ai) meaning "indigo" and 染 (sen, shi.mi, shi.miru, -shi.meru, -ji.miru, so.maru, so.meru, -zo.me, -zome) meaning "colour, dye, paint, print, stain." Normally, this would be romanticised as Aizome.
This surname belongs to Sōsuke Aizen (藍染 惣右介), the main antagonist for most of the 1st half of the manga and anime series Bleach.
