Etymology

Isshun Boy is derived from "Issun-boushi" while using an approximate English translation of "Boushi". "Isshun Boy" translates into "In a Moment Boy"

Origin

Minimoto is based on Japanese folktale character Issun-boushi (Japanese: 一寸法師 Issun-bōshi), who's name means "3 inch son" (Issun being an ancient Japanese measurement that approximately measures up to 3 inches) due to his tiny frame. Issun-boshi fancied himself to be a samurai, and used a sewing needle as his answer for a blade.
