Nome's real name is Arctic Soul Navarro, but we call him Nome according to a city in Alaska. In addition, Nome knows the following nicknames: Nomppu, Pomppu, Po-po-poo and Huomaamaton koira (Imperceptible Dog). Nomppu comes from Nome. Pomppu means bounce. He is called Pomppu, because he bounces only while waiting for food. Normally we wake Nome by saying Po-poo-poo. The Imperceptible Dog follows from Nome's manner to press against a man, when Nome sleeps.

Sitting is the basic trick of Nome. He knows that by sitting the situation is under control. Often this is true, but sitting for example in the middle of aisle in a rush bus is not always a good idea. In this situation Pomppu thinks that he doesn't do anything wrong. So it is very difficult to get him move out of other passengers' way.
