For those interested in the origins of Zinnia's Japanese name "Higana", check this out:

One of the Pictures in my Profile Pages is Higana and Shigana (Aster's Japanese name) standing in a field of Higanbana. In it, Higana appears to be sad.
(Probably due to the death of her beloved Shigana, whom she named her Whismur after.
According to Shigeru Ohmori, Shigana was the previous Lorekeeper.

Yeah, just to let you know, while I could read an entire story written in Hiragana/Katakana aloud, or even rewrite it in Romaji, I wouldn't have any clue what any of it meant, unless I happened to recognize a few words here and there.

Thanks!
One thing I was unsure about is the "Va", "Vi", "Ve", and "Vo" Letters.
I've never actually seen those ones used, and when I type something like "Ve" into that one keyboard in Pokémon that converts English Letters to Japanese ones, it just uses the "Vu" Letter, followed by the "a", "i", "e", or "o" Letter, depending on what I entered.
Also, check out the ways Eudict says you can spell "Velociraptor" in Katakana. They aren't used there, either.

oh huh
maybe they just have it in katakana for ease because many foreign words have v

Probably.
Heck, most of the time, they just use the B ones, instead.
For example, they spell the English word "Vampire" as "Banpaia" (like in Rosario+Vampire).

would make more sense as fa instead of ba?

IDK, but that seems to be how they do it.
If you notice the two different versions of Velociraptor, one is "Verokiraputoru" (with the "Ve" being "Vu"+"e"), and the other is "Berokiraputoru".
