Bill H. and TD,
Thanks for helping me.
You both came up with 悦 as the first character: "Etsu" (ON translation).
The second character might be 眞 or 真, both meaning "Shin" (ON translation) or "Ma" (KUN translation).
That leaves as a name: Etsushin or Etsuma, both Romanji names in the Japanese Kanji Name Dictionary:
Since one can enter also Japanese names in Kanji, I tried both combinations: the combination 悦眞 gives no result, the combination 悦真 give 1 result: Etsuma (first name male).
And indeed, like Bill wrote, no matches found about Etsuma or Etsushin in relation with Satsuma, Hododa, Ga, Sei o Zo, not in English nor in Japanese.
So I'm going to use that Etsuma name in my Marks Catalog.
