What does ”wii” Stand for in Nintendo Wii Console?

A lot of people have been wondering about its name. A lot has been asking why the this gaming console has been named that way. I’m sure you do, too! Hence, what does the “wii” really stand for? Some concluded that it was named after the expression “whee” that sets a feeling of excitement or joy.  Many speculated it could mean nothing at all. So here’s the fact:

The spelling of Nintendo Wii, as you noticed, has two lower cases “i“characters relating to appear like two people standing side by side.  Even the company has given so many reasons why they have come up to such oddly named console and according to them it is because:
