Her voice-bank was provided by Saki Fujita. Her name comes from first (初), sound (音) and future (ミク), so 初音ミク, or Hatsune Miku, is the result.
She is one of the most popular of the vocaloids, and her character item is a leek, due to the appearance of a superdeformed version of herself spinning a leek in her cover of the Finnish song 'Ievan Polkka'.
"Hmm, it would have to be Miku Hatsune. She has such a nice voice!!"
