Explanation

The kanji and the word are exactly the same. That means they share meanings as well.

Reading

はた
Kyoko
(Tokyo accent, female)
Kenichi
(Tokyo accent, male)

Explanation

Since this word is made up of a single kanji, it probably uses the kun'yomi reading. You did not learn this reading, so here's a mnemonic to help you:

The one with the flag is the Mad Hatter (はた). Just imagine looking through a group of people. You have to find the Mad Hatter, and he has to find you. That's why he offered to wear a flag on his hat.
