V-Varen Nagasaki's name can be separated into three parts with their own meanings. The "V" meaning Victory while Varen is Dutch for 'to sail', owing to Nagasaki's heritage as port of call of Dutch traders during the sakoku period in the Tokugawa shogunate (see Dejima). The clubs hometown is Nagasaki and through that comes Nagasaki in the name.
