No, it is one of the Romaji transliterations [may be the only one since 
it is a simple word, but there are multuple systems] for the japanese 
for turtle 亀 or かめ

The roman alphabet is one of the accepted alphabets and is used in 
writing japanese, by japanese, with English out of the question, when 
they cannot write kanji/hiragana/katakana.
