How Did Ganz Come Up With The Name Webkinz?

One day I was bored so I dissected the name. Here's what it all comes down to:

Web: In this case, Internet.
Kin: Family or children.
Z: Ganz ends in a z, so Webkinz had to as well.

So basically, Webkinz means internet children created by Ganz.

I hope this helps to anyone who has been wondering about this!

PLEASE RATE MY THREAD IF YOU LIKED IT OR FOUND IT HELPFUL!
PLEASE DO NOT STEAL THIS. IF YOU WANT TO ADD IT TO YOUR GUIDE, I MIGHT CONSIDER BUT PLEASE ASK FIRST!
