I found Wii really catchy, and with the idea of mii I would go for that one!

I like simple and to the point names. So Switch is the best for me



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Virtual Boy.



Favorite Mangas : Berserk, Akira, Gunnm, Monster, Death Note.

Favorite TV Shows : Breaking Bad, Chernobyl, The Sopranos, Oz, Narcos.

I'd say "Dolphin" would have been the best name. It somehow sounds fresh (maybe only in ears of a non english native speaker) Otherwise I'd choose "Switch", although it's not perfect, because it's not unique enough and you can mix it up with ethernet switches etc. But it puts the system's idea in a nutshell.

Nintendo's pre-release codenames often have a certain popularity; Dolphin, Ultra 64, Revolution, NX...

How come Wii U isn't an option?

Because it's awful and would attract too many troll votes.

It's confusing, awkward, and doesn't neatly encapsulate the system's concept.

You don't need to always be so serious, Curl, you know I'm being sarcastic.
