"Michikusame" is a portmanteau of michikusa ("loitering, fooling around", literally written as "roadside grass" as grassy roadsides are the archetypal spot for that sort of activity) and same ("shark").
"Chummer" is based on the word chum, which can mean "friend" or refer to a mixture of fish guts and blood, which is then scattered over water to attract sharks in a practice known as "chumming".
