    How did nintendo come up with the name "wii"

    I'm aware that they were first going to call it the "revolution" but it was too hard to pronounce in asian countries, but why/how did they choose the name "wii"? What does it meana nd where does it come from?

    Just something I've been wondering about

    My guess is that they thought what the most relieving bodily function is and named it that. Another option would have been Poo but that's not really a good name is it? Gotta go fire up the Nintendo Poo. I got to Poo. :0

    I think its supposed to mean like people playing it together and they used ii instead of an e because it looks like two people that would be playing together or some shit like that.

    Wii is an international word, easily said by anyone
    We as in all of us together
    ii as in 2 people and it interlaces the look of 2 wiimotes as well

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    Wii - 'we' play together
    Wii - Anyone can pronounce it
    Wii - 'we/wii' would like to play

    Just a wild guess

    Does it stand for Wireless Internet Interactive?
