Eventually, Izuku finds out that One for All contains the quirks of the previous users but he becomes the first user capable of manifesting them.[3] While he initially disliked being called "Deku" by Katsuki, as it is based from the Japanese term meaning "good-for-nothing.", Izuku is inspired by Ochaco's assumption that it was based on the word dekiru (できる, to be able to/to be capable of) to embrace the moniker and ultimately adopts it as his Hero name.
