What does the word Nintendo really mean?

The word Nintendo is composed of 3 Japanese Kanji characters, Nin-ten-do. These characters can be translated into a sentence like: "Heaven blesses hard work" but it can also be taken the mean of something like: "Leave luck to heaven", "we do all that we can, as best we can, and await the results" or "Work hard but in the end itīs in the hands of the heaven". Other suggestions are: "Deep in the mind we have to do whatever we have to do" and some people believe that it stands for: "The house where you leave everything to the heaven/fortune" (A Casino).

To me and probably a lot of other people, the word Nintendo really means, "To have fun enjoying video games that some Japanese person had created." However the word is translated, This definition is really all that matters in the end.
