Joystiq has published an interview with Nintendo:
One thing I've been also hearing -- and we don't have to dwell on this too much longer -- that people really got affixed to the Revolution name. The DS had that as its code name and there was talk about change, and then it stuck -- people got stuck on the DS and the DS name got stuck on the device. At what point did you guys decide you were going to jettison "Revolution?"

We've known for some time, which is why we've continued to call it a code name. People are going to get very comfortable with "Wii." There are already starting to be more comfortable at the show. Whether you individually like it or not, that's a different story, but I'm sure when people saw Google, you know, it still sounds like a really weird word.
