Where does the word Mỹ come from? What's the etymology?

Mỹ or Mĩ is Sino-Vietnamese 美 (short for 美国 = aMErica). 美 means "beautiful" by itself.

I'm Canadian, and I wouldn't ever recommend calling a Canadian an "American". We're known for being nice, but that's a good way to get into a Hockey Fight. Haha
