According to the Biblical explanation, the name נפתלי (Naphtali) is related to the word נַפְתּוּל (naftul, "twist" or "struggle").
Naphtali was one of Jacob's sons; the tribe of Naphtali is called after his name.
"And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed, and she called his name Naphtali." Genesis 30, 8
