I don't know the Chinese symbols but I know Maokai is an anagram for I am oak.

It's Maokai's language for "Imma resto druid"

I AM OAK


I seem to recall there was a Riot guy with some kind of oak-like name.

I'm pretty sure Mao means Cat in Chinese and Kai means "Triumphant" in Chinese, "Unbreakable" Burmese, "Recovery" or "Restoration" in Japanese.

So therefore..
Maokai is the Triumphant Cat champion

茂 (mao) 凯 (kai)

mao when use with sheng (茂盛) means lush.

kai, in the term kai xuan gui lai (凯旋归来) means the triumphant return of troops.

kai could also be a homonym for 开, which when used in the context of plants and flowers mean bloom.

The official Chinese vendor translates his name as 茂凯, so yeap it could largely mean lush victory
