At the end of the Lucky Channel segment in episode 5 of Lucky Star, Akira Kogami, raging because she won't be appearing in the main show despite the introduction of a new cute-little-girl-type character, says to her co-host Minoru Shiraishi:

"You know. Why don't we change Shiraishi Minoru's name to something else? Like Su-"

The segment then ends abruptly.

What, if anything, was this a reference to? What name did she intend on giving him? Googling the quote doesn't help, and I can't find it in the lists of references people have compiled for the series either.

    According to the commens on NicoNicoDouga, it was "Sugita Tomokazu", who voiced Kyon in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Researching a bit more, Minoru also participated in TMoHS as voice actor of Taniguchi, Kyon's classmate. However, I'm still unsure what it refers to, but it seems they both were famous of their ad-lib. – Aki Tanaka Mar 28 '17 at 5:53
