I think you must mix both your statements to appreciate the significance of Pi's name. On one hand Pi is filled with the wonder of the metaphysical. He constantly muses og God(s) and the meaning of life. He is a romantic at heart who is captivated by the things he cannot see. At the same time Pi, can be very pragmatic. He can make drinking water from the sea and match wits with a clever and deadly tiger.
