    Actually, it's not an abbreviation at all. It's from a Hawaiian word, wiki-wiki, meaning "quick-quick" coined for this usage by programmer Ward Cunningham (1949–). Info is limited on how or why he decided to use word 'wiki' but one could reasonably infer that it has to do with getting info/answers fast.
