Rowap -> Rowan Plant
Not just the word "Rowan". This is because Japanese loanwords tend to contract loanwords. This also includes Pokémon (ポケモン, pokemon, short for pocket monster). Another example is motorcycle = オートバイ = ootobai, derived and contracted from motorbike.
Rowap = rowan plant = ロワｯプ (rowappu), shortened from ロワンプラント(rowanpuranto).
