Pi's given name is Piscine Molitor Patel. Pi is named after a beautiful pool in Paris because of his father’s love for the stories his friend Francis Adirubasamy tells about the pool.Of course his "friends" tease him (kids do this) by calling him Piscine or “pissing.” So at a new school, Piscine takes the opportunity to adopt a new name, Pi.
