Translators should balance transliterations with the author's obvious intent. I mean, on his blog he spells it "Satelaser".

It's odd how inconsistently this is applied, by the way. You never see someone transliterating "Arthur" as "Assah" just because that's how they pronounce it, why so for other names?
I'm not quite so sure on the fourth one, because both Cassie and Cathy work as names.
