Why did he named it “wiki”?

Why did he name the site Wiki?

Howard Cunningham, creator of wiki software and the world’s first wiki web site (WikiWikiWeb), came up with the name after being told to take the ‘Wiki Wiki Shuttle’ at the Honolulu airport. “Wiki” means “quick” in Hawaiian. The first wiki site is still up and running at the server of his software consultancy firm, Cunningham & Cunningham.
