The meaning of Nam:
The Nam emotes, which feature Korean streamer Namja, can be found all over the Better TV platform. The Nam emote was initially created to celebrate the streamer but is often used in toxic Twitch chats with bullying, racism, or generally deadly intent.
Based on stream element data, Nam is currently the third most popular emote on BetterTTV.
Sometimes this is irritating as the emote consumes a lot of chat space and appears more prominent than other emotes.
Nam means non-Asian minority and is viewed by many as the emote called ‘Nam.’ The emote is named after streamer Namja. When Asian countries (such as Vietnam) are mentioned, or Asians appear on the stream, it is often spammed.
In the same way that TriHard is spammed by a toxic crowd on the internet, the Nam emote is also spammed all day long on Twitch by the underage crowd.
Namja, a Korean streamer who started on Twitch in 2011, is responsible for the Nam emote. Namja still streams to this day on Twitch, but not as frequently. Currently, he is playing Final Fantasy XIV.
Better TV added Nam on the 12th of December 2015, by NightDev (the company behind Better TV). According to Stream Elements, Nam is currently the third most used emote on Better TV with over 1,721,937,250 uses.
