Imagine if DLC, TV, UFO, USA, IJPC (International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding if you don't know), G8, OMG aren't acronyms.

This is what IJ is trying to demonstrate!

Then for foreigners, it would be pronounced I.J.

So, the Dutch should name this river the Ij if it is not an acronym (or historically so).

IJwhat? IJ meaning International Junction? International Justice River? This is the silliest name you can give to a geographical region - an acronym that does not stand for anything.

Let's all go to the IJ!

What?? I.J. is not an acronym??

Totally mind-blown that this IJ name doesn't stand for anything. But what could it stand for, before this name was created? How can anyone imagine that I.J. doesn't stand for anything, and that the name of this river is just I.J.?

Have you seen any acronyms or any name pronounced as if it is an acronym that does not stand for anything?

Yep. I mean this river, the I.J. river in Amsterdam. But no matter I try, I could not get a reasonable decomposition of this acronym.

BTW (By the way), we know UFO is Unidentified Flying Object, TV is TeleVision, PS3 is Playstation Three, and ET Cetra (etc.) In fact, some words, such as laser, radar, and scuba became words of their own, and before they were just acronyms, i.e. LASER, RADAR, SCUBA. In which you pronounce the individual letters of this acronym.

Then IJ is indeed a weird acronym. Eye-Jay.

I am planning to visit Amsterdam this winter holidays, and while I am reading about this city, I heard that it has a river, that is called IJ. As if it is an acronym or initialism, pronounced I.J.

But no matter how hard I search on the internet (I googled), I could not get what the river's name "IJ" even stand for, unlike virtually all other acronyms I saw (such as ATP, UFO, TV, USA, etc.)

What does the name IJ even stand for?
