50 Acronyms and Initialisms All Spelled Out


Today, acronyms are used for a variety of purposes. Government agencies often use them to make their names more easily recognizable, as do private businesses. For example, places like the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are all more commonly known by their abbreviations. When establishing new companies, business owners sometimes use acronyms to come up with a name. IKEA, for example, is a shortening of “Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd,” the founder’s name and the farm he grew up on. Similarly, M&M’s stands for “Mars & Murrie’s,” an ode to founder Forrest Mars and Hershey’s Bruce Murrie.

Acronyms are so common, in fact, that often people recognize the company without knowing what all of the letters stand for. To help you test your own personal acronym knowledge, here are 50 of the most common company abbreviations, along with their definitions. Take a scroll through to see which ones you can identify.

Apple Pie Is Out, Bloomin’ Apples Are In



We took inspiration from the ever popular bloomin’ onion and made a just as fun dessert. Though these finished bloomin’ apples look insane, they’re actually quite easy to make. (Just watch the video!) Because apples can turn brown really quickly, you’ll want to brush them with butter and get them in the oven pretty quickly after slicing them. If you want to take your time, squeeze lemon juice all over the cut side to prevent browning. These are also so fun to make in the air fryer!
