Christmas Gift Wallscroll 2

This was a gift that went to the South of the US as a gift for a family Christmas. This was for a military man that will be deployed to Japan. He wanted name translations for his family. How thankful I am for the men and women who serve so diligently, so I can enjoy the freedom and liberty of my life.

I did all the four translations originally, and for the first time, Yoshimi accepted one of my translations...(either I am lucky or getting better at understanding Japanese)
The first is Aaron. The first character is the same as in the Japanese Self Defense Force (Jieitai) and Ron in the character for to argue. Someone who argues for the defense of the country.
Jennifer is the flower that resembles Purity
Tyler is great good
Savannah is the blooming flower

The scroll is written by Ryugyoku, Yoshimi Yamada Maples in the Gyousho or semi cursive style on paper. The scroll is done in a Sandan Hyougu (Three Step) style. It is completed with a rosewood Jikusaki and the Kodai San iro Hanging string.
