    Hi,

    I'm a Nigerian whose surname is 'Osewa', which also appears to have a Japanese meaning. What does 'osewa' mean in Japanese?

    Regards,
    Seun Osewa

    "o-sewa" has many possible translations. For example, the expression "osewa ni narimashita" means "thanks for all you have done for me" or "thanks for the trouble". But "ookiina sewa da" means "that's none of your business". In genera' (o)sewa means to take care of sth/so.
