English Naomi is etymologically different to Japanese Naomi.

Not only that they are also pronounced differently.

English Naomi: nay-O-mee
Japanese Naomi: na-oh-mi (as in 'na' at the end of banana, 'oh' as in of and 'mi' as in me but 'ee' is cut short).

But don't take your lack of knowledge to heart. In Japan they thought I had to be part Japanese because Naomi IS Japanese.
