Her name is Ayano. The No of Nocchi uses the no from Aya"no".

The cchi is a honorific for nicknames.
everybody knows?

Ayanocchi ➔ Yanocchi ➔ Nocchi ─ https://youtu.be/S42DVlJhQ-8?t=3m58s

-chi is a diminutive suffix.

I've got a question about how their names are stylized. So I've seen their names used as aachan a-chan A-chan(~ alternatively for -), Nocchi, NOCCHi, Kashiyuka and KASHIYUKA. I've seen these on magazenes, within single brochures and on subs for their overseas releases with these variations. Is there any consistant style or its just up in the air?

GAME and FAKE IT are stylized with all caps while edge and love the world are usually done in lowercase. Usually stays consistant but those are songs :? Guess it doesn't apply with their names.

It really doesn't matter how you write their names. If you want the really "official" ways of writing them, it's あ〜ちゃん, かしゆか and のっち, since their nicknames are Japanese in origin.

As for why they write them using the Roman alphabet, it's for style. I remember when they started their whole overseas exhibition that their names in foreign press would officially be rendered Aa-chan, Kashiyuka, and Nocchi. A~chan's nickname is the hardest because foreigners often don't know any Japanese and therefore call her "A chan" instead of "Ah-chan," so they tried to make the distinction by going with Aa.

I figure it doesn't matter how it's spelled but still wanted to ask. This last little bit of info is interesting, however! Makes sense. I have heard people in their videos/ in person say it as "A chan" instead of "Ah chan" so that clears up the double "a". I'll be sticking with capitalizing their first letter.

(I also have a question)

I was wondering about the BEE-HIVE summer tour throughout August 2003 (also the live in May which has that Amuse 25th Anniversary watermark and a similar title to the summer tour) which there are various videos online. Where do they come from? I thought maybe there was a physical release but seeing it isn't even included in this list, then I highly doubt it did receive a physical release. Was it from a tv brodcast or someting?

Here are some videos.

Kashiyuka in the back at 4:18!
(Also, what is the info on this song? This song wasn't included in the omnibus album BEE-HIVE which is too bad because its a good song)

We don't have their confirmed ranges, but Nocchi and A~chan can hit high and low notes, while Yuka has a higher-pitched voice with very limited range.

As for the BEE-HIVE thing, it's probably a TV broadcast.

How do you pronounce the name of the song 1mm? Do you say "One" or "Ichi"? And do you say "M M" or "Millimeter" or a Japanese equivalent?

They often say 'Ichi Miri' (1ミリ) . What comes from the word ミリメートル (Mirimētoru) :yeah:
