I'm glad to know I wasn't the only person puzzling over how the maths will work for a six-person party. Looks like you have a good solution worked out though.

I would say yes to both; she stays disguised most of the time, but it's reasonable that the crew would know Medinah's a warforged.
So clearly the biggest tie between our characters is that one is a Warforged and the other is a Self-Forged. Medinah would be amazed at a creature of flesh and blood becoming partly mechanical/alchemical and want to know more about both the process of it and what it's like for him (I imagine this holding true in reverse as well). Being both a kobold and an artificer, Rahman would remind Medinah of her "second father" Ibn Sina, so she'd probably be rather protective of him even though they're also both swordmages, which could be a point of contrast since they're of differing styles although I actually think it'd work out to be more complimentary that way.
For ship names, I'm starting to lean toward "The Sapphire Slayer."
