He was offhandedly. When Wade has all the other powers put into him, Stryker calls him "Weapon Eleven" several times...but once seems to refert o him as "Deadpool".
When Logan breaks into Three Mile Island and finds Stryker and the doctors doing the finishing touches on Wade Wilson, this is the conversation -
Stryker: Logan....welcome back to the war.
Logan: Before I gut you, I wanta know why.
Stryker: I needed your powers for the pool.
Logan: The what?
Stryker: The mutant killer....deadpool. Years of searching and refining, finding the right powers that can co-exist in the same body without ripping it apart....
Now, some will say that he is actually calling him by the name Deadpool. But others have argued that he is simply talking about the pool of dead mutants genes that have been combined into the mutant killer Weapon Eleven.
