Water closet has to many meanings to be useful here. I call it the commode closet.

Re: What Do You Call...

An architect just told me she calls it the "water closet closet" and will label it on a drawing as below:

I used to think a lot of the people I encountered were stupid - then I realized how much I was overestimating them.

Re: What Do You Call...

In most of Europe, the term WC is used the same as how we use the term Washroom. There are signs that read WC at the airport and in restaurants; and when you visit a friend's home you ask "Oł est le WC" or "Wo ist Die WC"? (The W is pronounced like a V.)

In the region where I live in Canada, the term "ensuite" means a private bathroom off of a bedroom. The term "toilet enclosure" or commode enclosure" is used for a toilet fixture that is in a separate and private section from the rest of the bathroom.

I have heard the term Throne Room before, but this is the first time I have heard the term Poop Coupe. I find it funny and think I might start using it. I know someone who refers to the bathroom as the "Wipe House".
