"I'm not sure about the 1930's, but I've seen certificates with "Aikido" listed as early as 1940...." - Chris Li
"Are there any pictures of them?..." - Igor Vojnović
"Just a fragment of a scroll (Aikido as the art name), no dan ranks, at least none that I know of, until 1942." - Chris Li
So it seems that the name "Aikido" was in official use before 1942.
