Answer:
Mario Segali was the landlord of the Nintendo of America office. He barged in on a meeting demanding his rent, and hence the Nintendudes decided to rename Jumpman, the dude who fought Donkey Kong, to Mario. The rest, as they say-a, is history.

    Mario Segali, whose uncanny resemblance to Donkey Kong’s ‘Jumpman’ character led to it being renamed Mario, and thus the world’s most famous plumber was created.
