It was new to me. :)

Nothing on Gabrine. I found surname variants, but that's it.

My idea with regards to Gabrine's name is "gabugabu", which is a Japanese onomatopoeia for eating... also "inu", dog.

I stumbled across a reference to "Mizuki" being the Japanese name for the Dogwood.

According Behind The Name, it can also be translated from Japanese into a combination of "congratulations, hope".

Mizuki and Fubuki are kinda hard because the actual meaning of their name would depend on what Kanji they use to spell it. Since we never see any Kanji for their name, it's completely guess work.

I tend to favor the more flower based name meanings for them myself (like the dogwood mention), because of all the flower refs in their gear.

General question: Who're we missing on the main list?

Updated. There's a couple blanks left and it's always open for discussion.
