Nokia Nuo Ji Ya

Nokia is transliterated as 诺基亚 (nuo ji ya), simplified, or 諾基亞, traditional characters.

诺 (nuo) is to consent or to promise.
基 (ji) means foundation or base.
亚 (ya) is second (to) or short for Asia.

The name 諾基亞 (nuo ji ya) does not bring up any special or obvious meanings. However, its first and third characters combined, 諾亞 (nuo ya), is the same as the Chinese transliterated name for Noah.
