Some of these names are difficult to look up because of the combinations of sounds and the characters necessary to make those sounds. It may be difficult to look these up here. Please ask OKoonaa Sensei if you have forgotten how to write your name.
If I do not have someone's name here, please tell Ookoonaa sensei and she will include it as soon as possible!
