Nintendo "Revolution" sounded pretty cool, but apparently it was no good. "Wii"? Sounds like they just wanted a small name that easily goes between Japanese and English - sadly, they picked one that's regularly used in various places worldwide to mean urine (or here in Scotland, "small" too)
Even worse than Puff Daddy becoming "Diddy", which here means "idiot" or sometimes "tit".
And while I'm complaining about stuff, that episode of the Simpsons written by Ricky Gervais was terrible.
