Mario got his name because Miyamoto wanted him to be named that. I think there really isn't any particular reason why he named him Mario.

That man’s name is Mario Segale, and he’s not a plumber. He’s a wealthy real estate developer in Tukwila, Washington. Segale unwittingly stepped into video game history by renting out a warehouse that served as Nintendo’s U.S. headquarters in the early 1980s. At that time, a financially struggling Nintendo of America (NOA) was preparing the U.S. launch of Donkey Kong. Legend has it that NOA President Minoru Arakawa noticed physical similarities between Donkey Kong’s short, dark-haired protagonist and the landlord. So the crew at NOA nicknamed the character Mario, and it stuck.

Scary part is that they are more coherent than half the posts on here.

Yes I agree too. Mario was the very fundemental character for the beginning of the Nintendo legacy. However, mario had a downfall when he got bored with the spotlite and resorted to blow and hookers.
