A popular YouTuber has shared a quirky family tradition linking her name to the famous Tekken franchise.
In a world where gaming and family often intersect in unexpected ways, YouTuber “oh no nina,” famed for her engaging content and over 1.15 million subscribers, has revealed a unique family tradition. In a TikTok post, Nina shares that she and her siblings are named after characters from the iconic fighting game series, Tekken.
Nina, taking her name from Nina Williams of Tekken, explains that this tradition stems from her father’s passion for the game. He used to compete in Tekken tournaments and was quite skilled at it.
This love for Tekken not only influenced his gaming hobby but also had a charming impact on how he named his children. Nina’s younger brother’s Korean name is Jin, inspired by Jin Kazama, a central character in the Tekken series.
This revelation comes at an opportune moment, as Tekken fans worldwide are gearing up for the release of Tekken 8 on January 26, 2024.
