* "{{Wii}}" was chosen because it is easy to say (despite the fact that the phoneme for [wi] ヰ is obsolete in Japanese, replaced by [ui] ウィ/ウイ), is a homophone for "we," and the two i's look like two players. The gaming community [[SeriousBusiness staged a short rebellion over the name]], preferring the earlier code name "Revolution," but the name stuck.
** Similarly with the "WiiU" name: because in many languages "w" and "u" are used for the same phoneme, because "u" is an upside-down "n" (for "Creator/{{Nintendo}}"), and because of a game-making philosophy reemphasizing the role of the individual gamer whether through more hardcore experiences or through AsymmetricMultiplayer (as Reggie Fils-Aime put it during the E3 2011 reveal, "It's a system '''we''' will all enjoy together, but also one that's tailor-made for '''you'''.").

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', all four-person Huntsman and Huntress teams are referred to by borderline-nonsensical acronyms formed from their initials which are always ''pronounced'' like real words but never even come close to the proper spelling. Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang form Team RWBY, which is pronounced "ruby," causing confusion between the team and the character. Even weirder examples include Team CFVY, which is pronounced "coffee," Team SSSN, which is ''somehow'' pronounced "sun" (and for good measure, the team leader is also named Sun), team CRDL, which is pronounced "cardinal," and Team STRQ, which is pronounced "stark."

* The extinct primate ''Ekgamowechashala'' is a combination of the Lakota word "igmu" (cat, itself an idiom), "wicasa" (man), and the diminutive "la". The orthography makes this difficult to see.
