My advice is not to borrow from another culture for things of personal meaning. Oriental languages are fundamentally different than Romance languages and Germanic languages (at least in writing). The same character can have multiple meanings depending upon context. They are not "words" so much as ideas, so if you insist upon using a japanese character in this way, you must express the idea behind it rather than a single word.

Personally I would stick with a word in your own language that you personally understand. A Japanese or Chinese character that someone else has to translate to you doesn't actually hold personal meaning. It could say "This guy is a shithead" or "I eat goat droppings" for all you know.

Yes Japan has a certain glamour right now, but just because something is written in Japanese doesn't make it more profound than the same thing written in English, or Latin or German or French.
