What does the name "FuguIta" mean?†
FuguIta () stands for "Blowfish Disk" in Japanese.
Fugu means blowfish, and Ita means something flat such as a plate, a disk or a board etc...
Some Japanese might associate those who cook when hearing Ita. For them, so FuguIta also means "Blowfish Cook" as double meaning.
- "FuguSashi" is an unofficial nickname for the LiveUSB version of FuguIta.
"Sashi" is a Japanese word meaning "to insert" or "to stick", but it is also an abbreviation for "sashimi".
Most Japanese people will associate "FuguSashi" with fugu sashimi.
