What is the meaning of 'Mimi' in Japanese Language?

Salam mina sama!!
Atashiwa Mimiey des..

hehe... setelah sekian lama aku mencari akhirnya aku dapat find out aper maksud nama aku dalam bahasa Jepun. yang membuatkan aku tertanya-tanya,, sebab.. orang Jepun pown ader yang guna nama Mimi. and dalam percakapan harian pown ader disebut. so, aku betul2 nak tahu aper maksud nama aku niey bagi diorang. aku search punya search tiba-tiba jumpa ader website yang menceritakan pasal satu anime niey.

gini maksudnyer....

Anyways, these two titles came up during my web browsing the other day and I thought I’d write a short post about their titles. The first is “Mimi o Sumaseba”, a very lovely Ghibli film. The English title is “Whisper of the Heart”, which is more or less a retitling rather than a translation. I’ve always read that the literal translation of the title (in Japanese, “耳をすませば”) was “If you listen closely”, which is a very charming title in my opinion. But I notice that it isn’t an actual literal translation. The first word, “耳” (Mimi), means “ear”. “を”, written “wo” but pronounced “o” is a particle which connects the noun to the following verb. That verb is “すませば”(Sumaseba), which I believe is the conditional form (meaning “if”) of the verb which can mean “to clear”. So essentially the literal translation of “Mimi o Sumaseba” would be “If you clear your ears”.
That might sound a bit strange when written in English, and you can certainly see how “If you listen closely” can be derived (in meaning) from that phrase. Also, it might simply be the case that the phrase “mimi o sumaseba”, in everyday Japanese, simply has the same meaning as “If you listen closely” does in English. That explanation seems very likely. All the same, having a more literal grasp of what the Japanese actually means is something I find fairly rewarding, even if it is still a very rudimentary grasp.
