In Chisame's case, "Virtual Illusionist" fits much better than "Virtual Idol" because even though she acts like a Idol on the net, her real forte is hacking. That means she is hiding her real self in the net by becoming an Net Idol which in a sense would suggest that see is 'cheating' or 'creating an illusion' to hide her real self on the net. Also data on the net can be compared to illusions to some extent (both don't have any physical forms is one of the similarities they have). And manipulating that data to ones own desire would be like manipulating the minds of people to show them illusions (like in the recent chapter where Godel uses a program to show Negi about the past & trap him in that illusionary world which was latter broken by Chisame's artifact).
This is only based on my thinking though & i can't say what really Akamatsu's had in mind when he choose that nick name for her. So i would be sticking with "Virtual Illusionist" for the time being until more info comes out which points that the one i posted is wrong.
As for Negi's nick-name, the meaning which you gave about his nick name does match up with his personality, knowledge & career. But since i don't have a clue or idea about Latin or Greek language i can't say that you are right or wrong about it. So, i would wait for a few more days to see whether anyone else who has knowledge about Latin & Greek language has anything to say about it before i change it.

oh, ok sorry
Hello there! I just had to register and say that the Magistrulus Magi in Negi's Pactio card means 'Little Magister Magi/Little Magical Teacher', since the -ulus is a masculine diminutive form. I hope this helps!
(I know I'm reviving a thread, but this really deserves it. It was done really well!)
Hey Shadow! Great work and all. According to Wikia, Hakase made a pactio with Chao, though I have no memory of it, so I wouldn't add it. Just want to see about that.
Also, where can I get the information on Mei Sakura's card? I. Must. See. It. XD
Well, Hakase's pactio with Chao is a anime only thing, so you won't find about it in the manga as far as i know.
As for Mei Sakura's card, well i haven't found one yet (except for the fan-art one). As for the other factors of her card, the fan-art card which i found was made & based on the extra info's present in the volume versions of the manga (from what i know). And since her card really exists in the manga (unlike Hakase's), i decided to add those info in here. If any of those info is found to be wrong in the future then i would change them.
But for the time being, her card details are the only one's in all the list which are not confirmed completely except for her artifact name & its description (which i wrote myself based on how the artifact has been used in the manga) which has been already revealed in the manga story.
Well like I said before, here is the scans of the cards I have. Sorry for taking forever. The ones there are Negi, Asakura, Kaede, Rakan, Al and Misora. Plus the 4 different card's backs that those 6 cards have. Hopefully they can be of any use (sorry if the scans aren't done very well, but i kinda sucks at it XD)

You don't have to worry about them being late as well since they are not so late. Also the card pics are of good quality & are done nicely. And the combination pic of the card's back is really good as well, it would save me a lot of trouble posting them in here (since they are combined in one pic).
At the end of this post, i would again like to thank you for these card pics.
I beleive that the meaning is in the wrong placeQuote:
and concerning the "Master Name:", since the partners name how it appears on the card itself it it may be an idea to have the masters name how it would appear on the card aswell ie
Negius Springfieldes (Negi Springfield)
Nagius Springfieldes (Nagi Springfield)
Conoe Conoca (Konoka Konoe)
(assumeing that like negi, hers would be the same as the front of her attendant card)
Theodora Basileia Helladis de Vesperisszimia
oh and i'm pretty sure rakans card had nagi's name on the back

So, thats why i haven't added Nagi's name in the "Master Name" part for Raken, since i have still have doubts about it (maybe one of the volumes 'Info' part might have something about it, but since maximum of those have not been translated i can't say for sure anything about it).
