The name “Uu-chan,” derives from the Japanese word for rabbit, usagi. Similarly, “Fuu-chan” is related to the words for futago, meaning “twin,” and fuku, which translates to “luck.” This is likely a reference to Japanese fukubukuro lucky bags, which are sold in the New Year at a discount and contain an array of unknown items. It will be interesting to see what Miyazaki creates for the following year, which is represented by the dragon.
