By tradition he had no first name and in that same tradition his name was

changed upon his death. To address persons in such an exalted position

by anything but their title would have been an overly familiar gesture or

even an act of disrespect. Japanese tradition after all held that he was a

god. He was born as Prince Michi no miya and when he was elevated to

Emperor on the death of his father he became Emperor Hirohito. When

he died his name was again changed. In Japanese tradition he is now only spoken of as Emperor Showa.
