For the kanji of 'Onna', I was thinking along the lines of a kanji for 'On' and a kanji for 'Na' put together. (Like Sakuraba is 'Sakura' and 'Ba' - garden.)
Yuki Onna:(This Names a keeper) 7th year, very pretty, hates Chiharu for being selected as TriWizard Chamption, doesn't believe she is worthy.
Chiharu Sakuraba: I'm not married to Sakuraba, so suggestions would be great. Chiharu is a powerful witch, but her face is horrible disfigured, the other students say it's from the pureblood mania that will eventually destroy all purblood wizards.
Chiharu's friend: nameless for the momentSome of my possibles are Aimi, Akira, Hiromi, Hitomi, Miho, Miyako, Natsumi, Tomomi
And then, we have six more boys to name as well as the three other girls. Go nuts!
And then there are our little first year helpers. For the girl, I'd love to use a ko name, even if they are a little out of date know. Just to further enphisis who she in amoung this school: Hanako, Kameko, Kimiko, Kiyoko, Maiko(also the name for a quisha in training), Natsuko, Sakiko
And for the little boy: maybe Yoshihiro, but my sleeping pills are kicking and I'm call it a night.
We aren't allowed to touch the characters? o.O
This is so funny to read, because where I work (Disney), the Japanese guests are our loudest and most enthusiastic. They definitely smile the most and take the most pictures, and they're always so excited, I s'pose because in Japan they are not allowed to actually touch the characters, where they can here. The last thing I thought them to be culturally was quiet and reserved!
One thing that might be noted - many Asian cultures (Japenese included) are very big on gift-giving. Very, very big. As a courtesy thing.
