Akiho Rindou (鈴童 アキホ)

Full name officially romanized as "Rindou Akiho" in Digimon World Re:Digitize: Decode trailers.[3]

  • Ja: Rindou (鈴童?). Japanese surname that means "bell child". "Rin" is also shared with Digitorin's name.
  • Ja: Akiho (アキホ?).
    • Akiho can be written 陽, which means "sunshine" or "heaven", possibly a reference to Hououmon, a Digimon that presides over Holy-species. It can also mean "masculine", in contrast with Niko, which ends in "ko" (?), homophone to "ko" (? lit. "child"), a suffix common in feminine names. Niko and Akiho appear to be designed after an yin and yang theme, as Niko is partnered to a Gaomon, a blue Digimon whose Mega form, MirageGaogamon, is associated with the moon, and Akiho is partnered to a Biyomon, whose Digivolution line is mostly composed of Digimon who are red or a variant of it, and whose Mega form, Hououmon, is associated with light. There also are some moments in Re:Digitize where Taiga must choose which of the two he'll follow. 陽 can also mean "yang principle", further evidencing an yin ang yang theme.
    • Akiho can be written 愛穂, which contains the kanji for "love" ( ai?), possibly a reference to Sora Takenouchi, wielder of the Crest of Love in Digimon Adventure, and who is also partnered to a Biyomon.

  • Ja: Nyan (にゃん?). Japanese onomatopeia for meowing. Cats are very popular in the Internet.
  • Ja: Ko (? lit. "child"). Common suffix for feminine names.
  • Nyanko also starts with "ni" (?) and ends in "ko" (?), similarly to Niko.
