Well now that I find it pg 86 the first name (5 characters left of the big
is Su-te-fu-a-n, last name is he-be-n (3 characters right of the big dot) So
from the first name we can rough-out:

Stephan (Steven should be different sounds)
Hibben (this is a guess, maybe Hebon)

Gonna have to bring you a Katakana sheet sometime Neil, its really easy
to match the characters with a sheet, its trying to make sense of the sounds
into English/French/German or whatever language the Bandai/Sunrise guys
are reading when they make a series.

Like "La Vie en Rose" I was convinced the space station was named after
"Arabian Rose" until I saw the original 'Sabrina' with Bogart, and the girl
singing 'La Vie en Rose' and I get it.
