  • oneechan, (oneesan), (oneesama), (neechan)

    When used as a title, oneechan can be used to address one’s own older sister or it can be used to address a young female (older than or ᴘᴇᴇr to yourself) whom you don’t know.

    I’m pretty sure neechan literally means "big sister" though. For example, Naruto addresses Shizune as Shizune-neechan even after he gets to know her.

    The source listed has information on a lot of common Japanese name endings.

  • née Chan means literally ‘born’ Chan, and introduces her maiden name. Nowadays you might say formerly Chan.

    It is the female form of the past participle of the French word naître (to be born) – so "elle est née", means she was born.

  • I don’t know if this answers your question, but "nee" beans "born."

    For example if you look at a newspaper with people’s names on it and find, say, “Mrs. Alice Brown. (nee jones)” which means that before she was married, her maiden name was Jones.
