To compete in the professional arena, most of my players choose a unique name to express their ego, personal desires or sometimes to make themselves most comfortable. Usually fans receive these names immediately as an obvious fact that few people pay any attention to the meaning or the reason it was born.
Even with even T1 team I bet there must be more than half of the fans who have not learned about each member’s ID (or find it unnecessary to find out). If you are also among them then consider this an opportunity to “update knowledge about idols”.
Canna: Kanna-chan is in Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
This is probably quite a lot of people know because Canna has shared before and many other members often tease him about this already. Canna has been a big fan of this dragon girl for a long time and is very proud of it.
For those who do not know, Kanna Kamui is one of the loveliest characters in the Anime Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid and is a character with the Moe level causing online community fever. When she turned into a human, the size of kindergarten (grades 5-3), Kanna at first thought that Kobayashi seduced Tohru to stay and wanted her to return to their world. Kanna becomes attached to Kobayashi throughout the series, treating her as a mother. Kanna’s shape and clothes are inspired by the culture of the Ainu and supposedly from Ushishir. She wore a feather-like horn and a small tail in a light bulb, and it was capable of charging.
Cuzz: Originally intended to be Buzz but sounded too funny to change to Cuzz

Gumayusi: The character name in Maple Story
Gumayusi was dubbed the “treasure” and coach Kim considered the future of T1 if Teddy left, has been commented by both DOPA and many other players. His former name was Catan and was changed to Gumayusi when he was transferred to the main squad.
Gumayusi Lee Minhyung was born into a family of 7 siblings, under Gumayusi there is one younger brother. The oldest sister graduated from Seoul National University, the 2nd brother who used to compete for SKT T1 Starcraft 2. “Gumayusi” doesn’t really mean anything, it’s just Lee Minhyung’s old character name when playing Maple Story. Gumayusi challenged Korea at the age of 15 and became Trainee for T1 at 16.
Faker: I prefer it if I like it
When it comes to naming bosses, the president will naturally use the most words. At first, everyone who heard the word “faker” felt super cool, like a real person who pretended to be real, had a really strange appearance, and that was too much for Lee Sanghyeok. However, our intention doesn’t think that much, we just like it if we like it.
The last boss has never let us down
In an interview with BLV Khanh Hiep, Faker also shared: “I want to choose a noun with 2 syllables and so should Faker.”
In a Wolf teaching video, the Wolf explained that Faker reading it in Korean transliteration would mean “well paid”. Not to mention, the original name that Faker intended was … Classic.
That’s it, sometimes the cool names that we often see in top games are simple. Wolf used to teach his students to name them Black Kim Chi, Cheongsam or White Tokbokki …
