    Tell me one thing. What does "nomi" mean? Is it from your first language?

    Nope. The nickname was inspired by a celebrity baby, Noami Campell, a black. So blacknomi=black+Noami, through a process of blending.


    Does 'nomi' has other meaning in Japanese?

    By the way blacknomi, I think it's Naomi, not Noami. :wink:

    Someone calls me 'flea.' He said it's similar to a Japanese word. :)
