They could have called it K2, but that is too big of a hill to climb.

Yes, they named it right. No matter what, people will find reasons to niggle about it.
And by the way, if I'm searching for "Pentax K-1" I'm getting a lot of relevant results. I wonder why

We need a K-9, man's best friend!

Imagine the Doctor Who fans they'll attract if they style it right...
