Name[edit]

Mayumi's full name is Mayumi Joutouguu.

Her surname Joutouguu is likely derived from Joutoujin (杖刀人), which is the figure she is based on. The guu (偶) in her name is the same character in doguu (土偶), which refers to clay figures similar to haniwas, and guuzou (偶像), which means "idol".

Her first name, Mayumi, is a real-life given name that means "polished bow" in this case. The first kanji "polish" (磨) is related to a typical tool in the ancient ages "polished-stone tools" (磨製石器). On the other hand, "arrow" (弓) is what many haniwa hold in their arms, since they were burden in the tombs of authorities (古墳) in order to guard them.

The sound of her personal name "Mayumi" is derived from the voice actress "Mayumi Tanaka" (田中真弓), appearing in so many anime. One of them is '"Hanimaru'" (はに丸), the main character of an educatinal TV program "O~i Hanimaru" (お〜いはに丸). ZUN brings it up on his comment of Mayumi's theme in Music Mode.
