Why the name?
The name Ryujinx is based on the name "Ryujin." In other words, a name for a Mythical (Sea-God) Dragon. More information can be found here. The name stems from Ryu (as already explained), then RyuJIT; which is the codename for the JIT compiler for Net Core. The NX part of the name is from the Codename of the Switch itself.
