It's called a hemi because of the hemisphereical shape of the combustion chambers in the heads, vs. the wedge shape of most other motors...... Originally the spark plug location was centered between the two valves in the combustion chamber..If i remeber correctly, Chryslers first Hemi was a 392 Cu In, around 1956 perhaps
