I'm trying to finalize my bibliography, and need some help transliterating the names. Any ideas on these, appreciated:

太丸伸章

   のぶあき、のぶたか、のぶとし、のぶのり、のぶふさ、のぶふみ、のぶゆき、ただあき、ただたか、ただとし、ただのり、ただふざ、ただふみ、ただゆき

I'm reading the family name as "Tamaru", but the given name combinations are a bit overwhelming. The first one seems to be either Nobu or Tada, but you see all the possible combinations of the second. I generally follow Occam's Razor, but it's not helping me here. The only reading I can find via google search is "Nobuaki", not in this person's name, but someone else.

吉岡哲巨

   てつお、てつしげ、てつたか、てつとみ、てつみつ

Yoshioka is the family name, obviously. I'm thinking "Tetsuo" makes the most sense. Google searches come up with both Tetsuo and Tetsuhiro as possibilities. Thoughts?

小池徹郎
   みちろう、ゆきろう

No idea. The family name is Koike, got that, but the first given name kanji by itself is "Touru", which would be fine, but not sure how the "rou" 2nd kanji works in. A google search of the name doesn't give me a reading for this individual, but others with the given name have "Tetsurou".

Help appreciated.

Are these authors or historical figures?

Authors. Modern names. Google searching them turns up their publications, but nothing with the furigana.

Yeah, just googled one. A lot of times at the very end of the book on the page with the publisher's information they give the hiragana reading along with the author's name. It's worth a shot. In the meantime I'll ask the lady that lives with me.

EDIT: She thinks 哲巨 is Tetsumi or Tetsuo, but not 100% sure, and she just left so that's all I got.

Yeah. I have the books. And these three don't. If they did, I wouldn't have to search through name dictionaries, google them, and then ask you here, now would I? I doubt it

I have until Sunday, so I'll leave this here and see what we come up with.

It often helps to type the romaji if no results come up for hiragana or katakana. I do not know if it is the same author/editor, but we have a Koike Tetsurou, here.

Try this approach for the others.

I looked at the National Diet Library catalogue.
For 徹朗 I found some Tetsurô.
I found an 大見 哲巨 Tetsuo
Also several 伸章 , all Nobuaki.

worked like a charm for all three, and another one I needed. Thanks!
