Translator note: Each kanji character has its usual reading(s). But when used in personal name, any kanji character can be read as any way the parents wish. 緒 is usually read as 'o / sho / cho / itoguchi'. And 心 is usually read as 'shin / kokoro'. So someone who see 緒心 for the first time is likely to read it as 'Oshin'. Don't ask whether 緒 is read as 'Tsu' or 'Tsugu'. The parents of Tsugumi decided 緒心 as a set is read as Tsugumi. That's the way it is.
