I assume that you are asking about the term “WC” as it is used mostly in European countries. This is a term used to refer to a toilet or to the room in which the toilet is located. This term is not used very often in the United States. In this case, WC comes from the words “water closet.”
In medieval and early modern times, indoor toilets generally consisted of a seat over a chamber pot in a closet or other small room. Of course, it was generally only the elites who had such things. When various inventors started to come up with ways to use water to flush away the waste, the devices came to be known as water closets. This got shortened to “WC.”
The full form of WC is water closet.
