Ando (安藤 Andō): An (安) means peace or peacefulness and Dou (藤 fuji) means wisteria. This may refer to Hibiki as wisteria is a type of purple and Hibiki's surname contains the character for purple. Rei (玲): It could mean bell, bow, or order, all of which are related to Hibiki's role in Season 2, but the given kanji means the noise a bell makes. It could also be a pun on numbers, as it was used as the password to the burger joint right outside Pripara. An (Un) meaning one in French, Dou (Deux) meaning two in French, Rei (れい) is a way to say zero in Japanese.
