Here is a list of nicknames that was used to refer to Kawana Rin:

  • Narin-chan (なりんちゃん): Nickname used by members.
  • Keronnu (ケロンヌ): She got it when they shot ANGERME DVD Magazine Vol.29. On the part where they decide nicknames for the new members, she revealed that she likes frogs. There, the senior members started thinking for a nickname that starts with 'Kero' (the equivalent of 'ribbit' in Japanese). Immediately, they thought of affixing 'nnu' at the end just like Hashisako Rin's nickname to Tamenaga Shion, 'Shionnu'. They found it funny and settled for it.
  • Kero or Kero-chan (ケロ or ケロちゃん): Nickname used by members.
  • Keroppi (ケロッピ or けろっぴ): From the Sanrio character. Used by Takeuchi Akari.
