    Really? Hito = sea lion (somehow)? You learn something new every day.
    No, Hito means "one".

    So the name would be "Hito" (one person, sort of) "Maru" for boy/son, and then stick a sealion reference between them.

    アシカ Ashika is Japanese for sea lion.

    So if your theory holds through, Miju 3 will have a name like "Hitoashimaru" or something like that.

    I knew that "hito" meant "one", but you put the bracketed word "sea lion" after it, so I thought it meant something else.

    Also, "Hitoashimaru" would violate the 5-kana limit. Just saying...

    Another thing - I can't seem to find the entry where "maru" means "boy/child". All I'm getting is that it means "circle".
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    It's a common suffix in male given names. There's really not a good equivalent in English. Except perhaps "Smith" as a last name, but even that doesn't really imply gender.

    So, instead of hito-something-maru, we got Daikenki.

    I can understand the "dai", because we do that in Chinese as well (as in, the eldest son is called "big" instead of "one", where as the rest are called "two", "three", etc.), but I have no idea what "kenki" means.
