Explain your issue in full detail here:

When I export GMAIL address book via Google CSV, I see headers titled "Yomi"  
Any Idea what that is... and more importantly, how it translates to the gmail contacts list?  

Please Also Include:
Operating system (e.g. WinXP): 
Program and version you use to access Gmail (e.g. Internet Explorer 7 or Outlook 2003):  
Your antivirus software (e.g. Norton 2007):
Any extensions, toolbars or plug-ins:

I don't know what Google means by it but Wikipedia says: Yomi (黄泉?), the Japanese word for the underworld in which horrible creatures guard the exits;....

So maybe this is something dealing with the afterlife or a game or something.

"Yomi Name" means a Japanese reading aid. It is equivalent to "Furigana" ( see: )

Yomi is how the chinese characters in a name are read, usually this field is written with phonetics.
