    Default Mijumaru/Futachimaru/Daikenki - any information?

    Just a few notes on the name origins:

    Mijumaru - I'm convinced that the "mi" in "mijumaru" fits with the "futa" and "dai" in the evos' names.

    Also, the "samurai" thing in Futachimaru's name origin entry is completely unverified - I mentioned that by accident, and it's probably part of another dictionary entry.

    Actually, no - I did find a source for the samurai thing, however it's a very small one: http://www.jref.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-14139.html (Look at post #4.)

    Also, "Daikenki" could be Kanji-ized as "大剣客", meaning "big swordsman".

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    The only way I see mi and futa fitting together is as numbers - 三つ mittsu and 二つ futatsu.

    Exactly.

    In Chinese, when we're ranking brother, sisters, or any other sort of relative by order of birth, we use "da", "er", "san", etc. (e.g. 大哥、二哥、三哥 for "oldest brother", "second oldest brother", "third oldest brother")
    And these correspond to the "dai", "futa", and "mi" used in the evo line's names.

    Well played, sir. Well played.

    Oh, also, I found out that it's actually 剣鬼 and not 剣客, which is kenkaku.
