claiming they want 'Wang-i'.
Actually, as I gave it some thought, I wonder if the name 'Wani' in
Japanese would have been the way they would have said 'Wang'--I would need
to see more on how things came over, but depending on the tone and
dialect, I could see the Japanese using the 'ni' instead of 'nu'. Of
course, they could have been pronouncing it completely differently and we
are just guessing, too, ne?
