It was supposed to be referring to 'You' the gamer. At E3 2011 Nintendo basically said that they knew everyone thought they were catering towards the casual so wanted to create a console that was right for the casual 'Wii' and the more serious gamer 'U'. Hence Wii U.

Stands for "you".
Wii as "we", and U as "you".

In Dutch, "U" is proper for "you".
In English, it is just slang.

example: (Y R U late?)

Of course if you have bad pronunciation it sounds like "NINTENDO Y U..."

See, I was SURE it was for "underwear" or possibly "urine" but is the mystery really solved?

Coincidence = How a generation, many consider to be the most entitled and coddled yet, happens to love name-calling and the 'ignore' feature so much. Hmm...
