In Memoirs of a Geisha, what are the real names of Granny, Mother, Auntie, and Pumpkin?

... with given names and surnames, please. Thank you!


This is NOT for homework, and I have five other books in my shelf waiting to be read. I have no interest reading this book since there are supposed to be inaccuracies in it. I'm just curious about the names because the movie never mentions them. So heyhey, if you're not gonna give the answer anyway, don't bother filling the Answers section with your uselessness.

    I don't think their real names are ever given beyond learning that the okiya family name is Nitta. They mention Pumpkin's geisha name at some point (Hatsu-something), but everyone just keeps calling her Pumpkin after that, even the clients, so the name is never used again.

    Pumpkin s geisha name is Hatsumiyo,but everybody kept calling her Pumpkin.

    Mother s complete name is Nitta Kakoyo.
