No...they are not from Japanese language...but don't these letters have its own Japanese pronunciation?
(or...is it not appearing correctly? )

This one does . But I don't know how it's pronounced. Although if I were to venture a guess I'd say FUU.

I can't find this one in my handy-dandy Japanese online dic... 鴟. Just guessing, this one is probably HI

I used a Japanese - English dictionary (here or here) and found this:

oroshi
-
。レ、ェ、惕キ。ロ
(n) wind blowing down from mountains

and

hi, aburamushi
-

・メ, 、「、ヨ、鬢爨キ
wilwild

And that Kanji is only used in two words, and never by itself, so says the dictionary:

hichou
鴟トサ。レ、メ、チ、遉ヲ。ロ
flying bird

higo
鴟ク・レ、メ、エ。ロ
(n) rumour; gossip

"Wilwild"? I'm not even sure what that English word means myself. So, I'm guessing the answer you're looking for is "oroshi" and "hi", and I'm guessing you know proper Japanese pronunciation. Also, I don't know if this is related or not, but I found some other meanings for "aburamushi", but they don't use the 鴟.

Anyway, I hope this helps. Maybe someone else will know more about this.
