Octobrush Nouveau is a combination of Octo, latin for Eight, and Brush, as well as Nouveau, french for New. Octo likely refers to either Octopus, Octarians or Octolings. The word Nouveau may also refer to Art Nouveau. The suffix Nouveau is also used to differentiate it from the Octobrush. This trait is shared among the other alternate sets of the Nouveau brand.
ホクサイ・ヒュー Hokusai Hyū is a reference to Katsushika Hokusai, a famous Japanese Ukiyo-e artist. ヒュー hyū refers to Hue. Like Nouveau in the english name, Hue is used to differentiate it from the Octobrush.
