See Tachi: Enpi for the translation of "Tachi:"

This weaponskill's original name in the Japanese version is:

太刀・雪風 (Shichi no Tachi: Yukikaze)

"The Seventh Style of the Tachi: 'Blizzard'"

(雪, yuki: Snow. 風, kaze: Wind. Note it is the same kanji for puu in Tachi: Jinpu. The ON reading is 'Fuu'. Kanji are borrowed characters from Chinese, and ON readings are the Japanese attempts at pronouncing the word in its original Chinese context. Conjugated with Jin, it becomes 'puu'. The Kun reading is the actual Japanese word for wind, 'kaze', which Yukikaze uses.)
