Reisen Udongein Inaba (鈴仙・優曇華院・イナバ) is one of the legendary moon rabbits who fled from the Moon to Earth as a refugee from the "Lunar War" between the two worlds that began in 1969 A.D. after the Apollo 11 "invasion". Making her way to Gensokyo, she was surprised to meet the notorious fugitives Kaguya Houraisan and Eirin Yagokoro, and asked for asylum in Eientei. In exchange, she works for and protects Kaguya and Eirin.
Her full name is Reisen Udongein Inaba (鈴仙・優曇華院・イナバ), which is often abbreviated to Reisen U. Inaba (鈴仙・Ｕ・イナバ). Originally, her name was written in katakana as "Reisen" (レイセン), but in order to blend in on Earth, she changed the spelling to "Reisen" (鈴仙) and adopted the surname "Udongein" (優曇華院) from Eirin Yagokoro. Note that "gein" is pronounced the same way as the English word "gain"; her name should be written as "Udonge'in" in romaji, and possibly as "Udongeïn" in French. "Inaba" (イナバ), drawn from Tewi Inaba, is a name Kaguya Houraisan uses for all the rabbits in Eientei as she has trouble distinguishing between them.
In canon, Eirin Yagokoro is the only one who is allowed to call Reisen by the name "Udonge" or "Udongein", though she also calls her "Reisen" from time to time, particularly when she is not present. Kaguya is seen to use both "Inaba" and "Reisen".
The characters for Reisen literally mean something like "bell hermit", and Udongein "house of plantain flowers". Titles ending in 院 ("-in") were typically granted to Japanese noblewomen in their old age to indicate their special contribution to a temple or their high place in society, and carry a sense of great nobility and culture. This title is similar to posthumous names, called ingou (院号); examples include Kenreimon-In and Taikenmon-In.
There are several theories of where the name Reisen came from.
reisen (醴泉), meaning "spring of sweet water" - some say that this was the source of the immortality elixir in the Chinese legend of Chang'e.
reisen (霊蟾), meaning "spirit toad", but which due to a confused led by the kanji is now used to refer to moon rabbits or the Moon itself.
reisen (冷戦), meaning "Cold War", the time at which human exploration of the Moon started. (see the notes on Reisen's spell cards).
reisen (零戦, also called as zero-sen), meaning "Zero-Fighter", as in the Japanese Navy designation for the famous Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter plane, which may be a reference to Reisen's military background (see also Imperishable Night/Music). However, this name connection has been stated to be irrelevant by ZUN in Strange Creators of Outer World.
Incidentally, in German reisen means "travels" or "voyages" as well as "to travel". There is also a species of rabbit known as the Deutsche Riesen (German), but this origin is generally thought unlikely. More loosely, reisen is a definite singular for reise in Norwegian, which means "journey" or "trip".
