In Noragami, the main character refers to himself as "yatogami". I'm not sure if that's his name or his title. A quick google search shows that its a surname, but the way he said it makes me think its some kind of title.

  • Well after seeing some episodes of the season two it seems to be true because the history of Yato-no-kami suits Yatogami very well. – user18784 Oct 29 '15 at 20:35
  • Also, he killed "them" because not because "they" intruded his territory, but because someone requested to kill "them". Doesn't seem related to Yatou-no-kami at all. – Aki Tanaka Oct 30 '15 at 9:30

In Noragami, Yato refers to himself as a god. 神, which is the kanji for god, can be pronounced "gami", so he is probably referring to himself literally as "Yato God".

  • So then Yatogami is in fact an alias? @kuwaly – Callat Jul 1 '16 at 20:18

His name in Kanji is 夜卜

Yato is neither, but rather an alias. The 卜 is actually a kanji and not the katakana "to" that he makes people believe it is by calling himself Yato. His name is actually Yaboku.

Gami, one of the pronunciations of 神 would be his title, since it means god.
