Ishikame sounds pretty unlikely to me. Are you perchance going to
Pennsic? If you are, then you should be able to get help at the
Heraldic consulting tent. Also, Japanese women's names and naming
practices changed over the years. It will help if you pick a period
first. Are you interested in the Heian period or the early Kamakura?
Those tend to be pretty good periods for women.
