- According to Akihiro Honda himself, his Dr.Honda alias originated from his initial plan to name himself "Dj.Honda", but changed it when he found an artist using that alias existed already. His Dp.Honda alias, which he used in pop'n music, is a slight alteration of the above alias, where the "p" stands for "pop'n music".
