Your entire life has been a mathematical error. A mathematical error I'm about to correct.

My guess is that they chose those names so that people would know that it's a different game. Don't wanna make the mistake of "Oh, 3ds. That must just be a 3d ds" with "Oh, mario Kart 3d, that must just be the 3d ds game" etc

just a guess though .-.

Eh, I think it's a nod to Super Mario Land, though putting the 3D before Land is awkward imo. Mario Kart 7 is just unoriginal, though I suppose Mario Kart 3D would have been unoriginal as well so I don't really care.

Super Mario 3D Land is just weird. It immediately brings to mind Super Mario Land.

Except Mario Kart 7 makes sense since in Japan Seven is a huge lucky number. There are also several games that have broken theme naming or roman numberals on the seventh installment (for example Ys I/II/III/IV/V/VI/SEVEN and Puyo Puyo Tsuu/Sun/~on/Fever/Fever2/7)

Super Mario 3D Land is just terrible. At least it looks good.

I'm pretty sure they had a meeting yesterday being all stressed out about the low sales. They started panicking and then picked some random names for good luck. "Land" was chosen to attract retro games and invoke nostalgia and "7" to get some good luck as was mentioned above.

'New Super Mario Bros.' is also a terrible name.

In fact, 'Super Mario' is a terrible name.

And yet they caught on.

I like Super Mario: 3D Land. I like Mario Kart 7, I like New Super Mario Bros. and I like 20 free games.

Nintendo aren't my favourite company but this is all good news to me!
