  • "Hiiragi", her Japanese surname, translates as "holly", which is traditionally used in Japan to ward off evil.
  • Her Japanese given name "Kaede" translates as "maple", which in turn comes from the Japanese for "frog hand" (kaerude), owing to the maple leaves' supposed similarity to the hands of frogs. Since maple leaves are also well-known for turning red in fall, so the English localizers guessed that the name was probably a play on "red-handed".
  • The English localizers were unsure as to how they could fit the meaning of the Japanese given name into their version, so ultimately abandoned the "hand" part and settled on "Russi", which comes from the Latin "russus", meaning "red".
  • Her English surname of "Clover" was chosen to have a similar meaning to the Japanese version, as clover is traditionally used as a good-luck charm.
