    SOUNDPOST, (James): a minor character and musician in Romeo and Juliet
  • mis - plural of mi: third note of the sol-fa
  • aco - a Mediterranean fish
  • wau - the digamma, an archaic letter of the Greek alphabet
  • han - a wooden board in a Zen monastery used to alert its community members of an event; (capitalized) a dominant majority ethnic group of China; a Chinese language or the characters used in its written form; a feudal clan or fief in Japan 
  • hud - (Provincial English) a huck or hull, as of a nut
  • hip - a joint between the legs and waist; modern and fashionable
  • who - what or which person or persons
  • bas - plural of ba (usually capitalized): an aspect of the soul in Egyptian mythology
  • set - to place; to adjust; to establish; location of a staged production

Given that the first character is only a minor one, and that  some of the words above are not found in many American English dictionaries, the likely answer is:

    DESDEMONAOthello's wife in Othello
  • mid
  • ace
  • was
  • had
  • hue
  • him
  • who
  • ban
