Am I stupid? I want to play Sega Allstars Racing Transformed with my wife but we can't figure out how to play with separate profiles. It's either Scott and Scott(2) or Izzy and Izzy(2).

You can make another account by creating another Mii. You can set the default user under "User Settings" after selecting the Mii on the Wii-U menu. Please consult page 33 of your console's Operations Manual for additional details. –  Krazer Dec 26 '12 at 2:51
Thank you but I think you misunderstood the question :( –  Scott Beeson Dec 26 '12 at 15:09
Please explain what you mean by "separate" profiles. You can have 12 user accounts per console. –  Krazer Dec 26 '12 at 15:43
He's asking how, with multiple users configured on the console, to select different ones for each player in local co-op. (This is trivial on the PS3 and 360 if the game supports it, so that may be the case here. I don't have a Wii-U though. Probably should retag with the game if it turns out to be game-specific though.) –  Shinrai Dec 26 '12 at 16:02
It's not necessarily game specific. I'm not sure it's possible at all to be logged into the console with two Miis –  Scott Beeson Dec 26 '12 at 18:21

It is not possible. I've wondered this for myself for Injustice: Gods Among Us and Skylanders Giants, but it would appear only one user can be logged in at a time, which is a really weird option in my opinion. It's probably because save files are tied to the user account, and the way they have it set up, it might do some funky stuff if both users are trying to access their save files at the same time.
