Spelling of surname

Is the spelling of his name canon? Could it also be Sato? If it is indeed spelled Sato, there is a possibily that Noriyuki is a relative of Noriko Sato.--Rodolphus (talk) 15:25, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

I've searched the web and, apparently, the presence of the macron, which marks long vowels, is important and would actually make two words completely different: kōtsū (交通, こうつう) "traffic"; kotsu (骨, こつ) "bone" or "knack". Although I'm not knowledgeable on the subject, I'd err on the side of caution, and say they are not related. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:35, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
