Well, Pentax I always thought -M stood for Manual focus. As in MZ-M?

It was the only time they used that designation; except for the KM. I don't see how that turned into a habit for them.

I believe the -m stands for "mini".

You're wrong (again), it stands for m(ama) as this camera is targeted towards younger women in Japan. There was a study that mothers with smaller children both make the most pictures of any group of users (non-pro, obviously) and also print the most hard copies on paper (again) of all amateur groups.
