According to her lore she pretty much grew up an abandoned delinquent from the sounds of it and joined a street gang when she was 6 years old. I'm guessing that nickname "VI" was given to her (as in 6 because of her age). Vi being a kid didn't understand and probably thought it was pronounced Vye and just ran with it eventually.


My guess is given her background and her taunts in game(Vi is for violence/vice etc) she actually doesn't know what her real name is.

Various official sources have confirmed it IS pronounced Vye.
-Champion Spotlight
-Login Screen Song
-Red forum post on her feedback thread
-Vi HERSELF says her name in game

Also, most theories I've seen is that Vi is short for Violet as her full name. But no one's confirmed/denied that.
