Momozaki (桃崎?) - Momozaki comes from Momo (桃?) meaning "peach", combined with Zaki (崎?) meaning "small peninsula". So Momozaki means "small peninsula of peaches". Yet, if 色 (iro?) is added right next to the 桃 it becomes Momoiro (桃色?) which literally means "pink color" in Japanese, which might be a reference to Guardian Angel Papillon's theme color.
Rikka (立夏?) - Rikka is a Japanese given name for girls, which means “beginning of summer”, or “first day of summer”. The single kanjis, however, mean Ri (立?) meaning “standing” and Ka (夏?) meaning “summer”.
