Some info from Wikipedia:

Donkey Kong was created by Nintendo's game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. He believed "donkey" meant "stupid" in English, and assumed the name would convey the sense "stupid ape" to an American audience. When he suggested this name to Nintendo of America, he was laughed at, but the name stuck. The validity of this story, as well as others, has been disputed.
