Kagamine Len (鏡音レン), sometimes referred to as Len Kagamine, is a humanoid persona voiced by the Japanese singing synthesizer application VOCALOID developed by Crypton Future Media. Kagamine Len is portrayed as a 14-year-old boy with blue eyes and blonde hair. His voice is sampled from Japanese voice actress Asami Shimoda.[1] [2]

Etymology

As Len has a mirror counterpart, Rin, Len's surname was derived from combining the words Kagami (鏡, mirror) and Ne (音, sound). While Rin's name is said to come from the English word "right", Len's voice is said to come from the English word "left". They are also said to be derived from the characters Ken and Rin from the manga Hokuto no Ken.
