The name of Tenzin is taken from Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, and means "Upholder of teachings."

The title of the new series has undergone some changes. Earliest mentions about a new series spoke of Avatar: Legend of Korra, however, due to an issue with James Cameron's Avatar trademark applications, it was changed to The Legend of Korra. Sources suggested that the title would be Avatar: Legend of Korra, but it was later confirmed that the title would be The Legend of Korra in the United States and Avatar: Legend of Korra for the international version.
