During the broadcast, she provided a backstory for her stage name, saying, I usually wear a lot of hoodies and so I chose Hoody as my stage name.

She continued, I was in a hip hop club when I was in college. Ja Mezz from Show Me the Money joined in the same year as me, and told me that it would be good if I had a rap name, too. I was wearing a hoodie at the time so I just chose Hoody.

As for rumors saying she's the tallest labelmate at the agency, she responded, "I'm 5'8" (173cm), but I'm not the tallest one." On the origins of her name, Hoody revealed the explanation was simple, saying, "I wore a hoody a lot, so Hoody was decided as my name. I was in a hip hop group in college. Ja Mezzof 'Show Me the Money' was a member, and he said, 'You should make a rap name too.' I was wearing a hoody, so I went with Hoody."
