Can someone who can fluently write in Japanese help me out?

I'm trying to create a name for a character of mine and I'd like to put a hidden meaning behind the name. I've figured out what I want the name to be (Shinori Toyotomi). I only need help with the first name. It's Hiragana form is しのり Katakana form is シノリ, however I'd like to make it seem as though the name is related Oscillation and in Japanese its 発振 (Hasshin). What I thought at first was that I could separate them and say that the Shin in Shinori means shaking (振 ). Would that work?

    No, it wouldn't work. んis a completely different consonant sound, and not interchangeable with with other "n" syllables, even though they are represented by the same letter in English.
