So what you quoted from Wiki doesn't apply to the approval email, doesn't even necessarily apply to other places on the Citi website when you're logged, it only applies to the list under "Set Default Credit Card and Nickname" (plus perhaps one or two other places while logged in but only if you didn't nickname the card).

Citi refers to this card generically all over the place without using "World". The lack of the word "World" means nothing if you're not looking in exactly the right place.

The distinction in the description cited in Wiki is referring to what you would see on Citi site in your profile where each card registered is listed.

The Congrats email always comes with the name as you noticed. But it is a W, rest assured.
Thank you guys both for the detailed confirmation. I know I was taking it out of context but couldn't pull up anything on it related to the approval email wording. Good to know, thanks again!
