From the wiki:

The name "Nami" has several different meanings in Japanese, but is commonly translated as "wave," as in ocean waves.

She is a mermaid fish thing so the name feels appropriate.


That's infuriating. Has Riot any idea what happened in Japan back in 2005? A tidal wave killed nearly 300,000 people, and now they go naming champions after such events?

I'm sorry but I refuse to tolerate this.

No problem with Elise. Then Zed comes out. Like, really? Zed? Okay... Now we get Nami. Backwards it's pretty much "I man". Anyhow, I just read the next champion's name. What the hell.

Vi??????


Nami means wave in Japanese...I man...really?

Nami is wave in Japanese. Seriously, how hard is that to get? I mean tsunami = harbour wave. It's common knowledge. Nami is also a fairly common (and lovely sounding) name for girls in Japan.

But I agree with Zed and Vi.

not sure if srs


Why would it not be serious? If they named a champion something that meant "Guy who hijacks a plane and crashes it into a skyscraper", I'm fairly sure you wouldn't be all "Hey, that's a great name :)"

I'd laugh hard then buy him so I can get reported for suiciding into turrets. But we have Corki for this.

Corki and Ziggs are mad bombers whose sole intentions are to blow up structures and other people.
