others might not even flinch at something as obscure <coughcough> as Ii.*
Ditto first names. The more famous the person, the more likely people might have heard of his first name, though -- that is something to take into account. There must have been thousands of people named "Ieyasu" in Japanese
history, but if you take that name, eyes will still roll. <shrug>
It's your comfort level. I know people who would refuse to use a specific name if they find it in a history book. (The trouble is, *I* can find it in a book <G>)I also used to know someone who wanted to use "Toshiro Musashi" (yes,
in that order). The fact that Toshiro Mifune is arguably the most well known actor of Japan (and samurai films) and played Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous swordsman, didn't bother him a bit.
*Just ribbing.... I am always surprised by people who don't know how to deal with Ii-dono's name, but I'm very familiar with the hanshuuke** of Hikone.

- Wow, I'm almost a week behind in the e-mails. I've been at gallery 357 here in town setting up a warehouse for an art show that happened on friday. (tearing out old electrics, putting up new drywall, etc.) Funny thing is, I met someone down there who knows where to get the powdercoating done for pretty cheap ($50 for a chair sized sculpture) right after I emailed you about powdercoating. Another cool thing is that they have a masterblacksmith an two other welders on site. Good timing.

(BTW, for the record, for those who don't know, spondoolicks = moolah, oof, greenbacks)
