Where did the nick "HEMI" come from?

I'm a car numbers freak, particularly Mopar (Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Jeep, Eagle, Fargo, DeSoto, etc.) vehicles. The infamous Hemi was (and still is, in a lot of ways) just about the wildest production engine ever put in a classic American car, so...Why not use it for a nickname? :)

So why do I use "Hemi" in all capital letters? Look at any original 426 Hemi air cleaner.
