The Mario/Wario comparison seems to any non-Japanese speakers or Nintendo enthusiasts built from the M upside down to produce a W. This builds the "Wario is the opposite of Mario" idea.
However, the Waluigi/Luigi comparison is not nearly as obvious. I personally wouldn't think adding a prefix of Wa- would mean something was the evil opposite of the rest of the word ("Luigi"). Then again, I don't speak Japanese.
7uigi, I'm sure you realise, is an irrational suggestion for a name. Waluigi himself seems a tad unimportant, too. Is it really necessary to have an evil equivalent of Mario and Luigi? Couldn't they just have made a "Wario Jr." like they did with Bowser?
With Waluigi, they're stuck with a character who can do very little in terms of games, and only appears as a sidekick to Wario, who is a far better developed character.
