What will the new Nintendo Switch be called?

New Nintendo Switch 15 30.00%
Nintendo Switch Pro 5 10.00%

Super Nintendo Switch 21 42.00%

I thought I would create a fun poll to see what everyone's thoughts are on which name Nintendo will go with for the next Switch revision. Seems like the announcement could be imminent! I picked what are the two most likely along with an Other/post below choice. I left out Switch 2 as a choice because I think we all in agreement that this won't be a "new" console; i.e. the number 2 implies the start of a new generation, where games could be exclusive to it. I don't think Nintendo is going to suddenly turn their backs on 85+ million current Switch owners, and that this will be no different than the PS4/PS4 Pro or Xbox One/Xbox One X relationships.

EDIT: And to answer the OP, my heart says "Super Nintendo Switch," but my brain says "New Nintendo Switch."

It will be some brand new name that has never been used before, because Nintendo is usually gives an original name to these mid-gen upgrades. It will most definitely not be called "Switch Pro", because they aren't going to copy a Sony name. Sony copies Nintendo, not the other way around.

Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo will refer to it as "new Nintendo Switch" to emphasize that the machine is an update.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

ooh no here we go:

Switch Superior

awesome right?
