It's kind of grown on me. I remember when Kinect's final name was revealed, people were ridiculing it left and right, but it grew on me too.

The names just makes sense somehow.
~ Kinect is a play on the word "kinetic", meaning "movement".
~ Wii U is an extension of the concept of "Wii". "Wii" play together, "U" have the controller.

It's disgusting, The worst console name in existense no doubt.
I'm just gonna call it Super Wii. I'll scribble off the U when I get the system and throw down a Super. :p

Yet everybody thought 'Wii' sounded a bit odd in the beginning, but it is GOD compared to 'U'....I bet Cathy Dunway the rooster came up with that one.
Is there still a chance that they'll switch it's name?

Super Wii sounds much better. And it makes more sense. I vote we all call it that from now on.

I agree with Mickeymac and Waveboy, Super Wii is a much better name. I also agree with Waveboy that even Wii is a better name than Wii U. At least Wii flows better as a name.

Kind of sounds like a command to go to the bathroom "wii you" then again I didn't like the wii name much either the fact they found an even worse name is kind of impressive really.

It's not any stupider than the Wii name was originally, and we all got used to that. I'm more surprised people still care enough to complain about the name.
