Default Re: Famous Faces in the 16th century

I noticed that account of Musashi's up-bringing differs somewhat from the Novel by Eji Yoshikawa, being as Novels often romantise the truth I dont doubt that the version you described may have been closer to the truth but I just wonder where the name Takezo came from?

Does the name that Musashi went by in his youth in the novel hold any historical merit? I also wonder if his uncle who looked after him after his mother's death was said to be named Takuan as per the novel also.
