「オドキリ」、「キョウジュ」、「アーポン」、「ブリガミ」と「ヒルネリ」という名前のついたエルフがいます。「キョウジュ」、「ブリガミ」と「ヒルネリ」の名前の語呂合わせはわかります。「オドキリ」と「アーポン」は??

There are elfs with names "Odokiri", "Kyouju", "Aapon", "Burigami" and "Hiruneri". I understand the wordplay of names "Kyouju", "Burigami" and "Hiruneri". ヒルネリ => 昼寝 (this elf likes to sleep) ブリガミ => ぶりぶり + がみがみ (this elf often in bad mood) キョウジュ => 教授 (this elf is very smart). I'm trying to understand the meaning of other names - "Odokiri" (maybe from おどおど or 驚く) and "Aapon" (doesn't have distinguishing feature, 普通).

  • Hi, welcome to the site. I fixed your question because hiragana and katakana are mixed up in some of the names. I hope I could have managed to make what you wanted to ask more clearer. – kimi Tanaka Apr 6 at 14:22
  • I googled with these names and found nothing relevant. I have no idea what キョウジュ, ブリガミ or ヒルネリ would mean. In addition, usually elves are creatures in western fantasy, not that of Japanese. (I happen to know elves in DQX have Japanese-like names, but is it what you are talking about?) – naruto Apr 7 at 3:45

  • @Sever81 Please add the information to your original question and let us know what kind of character do「オドキリ 」and 「アーポン」have. I think it makes the people answer more easily. – kimi Tanaka Apr 7 at 11:42

I guess 「オドキリ 」is composed of onomatopoeia「オドオド」: "Because they are getting nervous, they look uneasy/restless" + 「ドッキリ」」: "they are getting surprised because it's unexpected." And concatenate them altogether into the ligature-like name 「オドキリ 」. It seems "he is not confident" in total.

I have no idea about what「アーポン」means. I can find an idol called「あーぽん」, the nickname of 「[彩華](あやか). Is real name still hid like her? Or the name describes elf's appearance rather than their personality?

I think you have correctly analyzed other elfs' wordplay.
