ITZY Reveals Fun Group Names That Were Almost Selected For Their Debut

DJ Kim Tae Gyun commented, “The name ITZY is unique. What does it mean?” and Yeji responded, “It means that we have (itji) everything that everyone wants.” ITZY’s name is pronounced as “itji,” in Korean, which is a conjugation for the verb “to have” in Korean.

The radio DJs continued to ask about their name, saying, “Were there any other candidates [for your group name] besides ITZY?”

ITZY began laughing as they revealed that some of the potential names were ones with “girl crush” vibes like Purple Heart, Triggle (a combination of “trigger” and “giggle”), and Queendom. They added that Park Jin Young had decided on ITZY as their final group name.

Best Name?

Purple Heart

surce: @soompi, soompi, naver

Triggle? lmao
I guess Purple Heart isn't too bad

I'm glad they decided to go with Itzy, I like this name and they're using it well with the It'z Different/It'z Icy names

theyre all awful. purple heart wouldn't be bad if my american ass didn't immediately associate it military veterans

Yea my first reaction was ‘the Medal of Honor given to soldiers wounded or killed while serving’ 😬😬😬 uhhhhh....

But that’s why I’m interested in what JYPE’s meaning behind it, I’m sure it wasn’t that lol
mattemate 21st-Aug-2019 03:28 pm (UTC)
luckily they were smart enough to not do that, regardless of whatever meaning they had come up with for it!

Queendom is so cheesy lol
the3rdjester 21st-Aug-2019 02:37 pm (UTC)
Queendom is cringy tbh. (And my mind goes somewhere... else, so yeah...)
Idek about Triggle..
I'm almost sure some ARMYs would pop veins if they were named Purple Heart.

Overall, ITZY >>>

i didn't even think about Armys. thank goodness they didn't choose it
nudrive 21st-Aug-2019 03:24 pm (UTC)
lol I was gona say the same about army and purple heart
timetobegin 21st-Aug-2019 02:52 pm (UTC)
Itzy is definitely the least worst out of all these lmao
dior_chic 21st-Aug-2019 03:05 pm (UTC)
Triggle reminds me of Teletubbies (idk why) thank god they didn’t go with that

Purple Heart makes me think of the American military, I wonder what the meaning would be in Korea. Queendom is fun but Itzy’s concept isn’t bold enough for that. I really like them...but they’re not queens yet lol.

Itzy works for their cute but confident concept 👍 and I’m glad Denimalz or whatever it was called was never in the running it looks like
hpn88 21st-Aug-2019 06:34 pm (UTC)
Denimalz went onto become Day6 line of animal plushies for concert merch. Makes way more sense than as a group name.
dior_chic 21st-Aug-2019 06:39 pm (UTC)
Ohhhhh! *phew* that makes way more sense
kcaomei 21st-Aug-2019 03:23 pm (UTC)
triggle is AWFUL and the other two aren't far behind lmao itzy is cute, i'm so happy they went with that whew
adenar 21st-Aug-2019 03:46 pm (UTC)
I think purple heart is cute, I'm not American so didn't know it was a medal in their military and therefore it holds no meaning to me other than a cute name

Triggle is so bad it's bad meaning good y'know? I hope another group steals it.
lydzi 21st-Aug-2019 04:00 pm (UTC)
Thanks God they didn't went with Purple Heart because some army would have went so mad lol

I love Itzy tbh :3

Lmaoooo they’re all terrible! And to think we all made fun of Itzy when the name was first announced.

myrrhcat 21st-Aug-2019 04:58 pm (UTC)
hhhhwow. itzy is a great group name and none of these others are remotely serviceable
purple heart has the us military association, triggle is... good lord i won't even get into that, and queendom is much too mature (plus it's a show now, and it suits a show much better than a group name honestly)
daynr 21st-Aug-2019 06:03 pm (UTC)

Purple heart medals are given to U.S. soldiers wounded and killed in battle, so that one would be odd to me too.

Turns out, I now love ITZY!
xlovexlessxtyx 21st-Aug-2019 06:46 pm (UTC)
Triggle may be the worst name I've EVER heard. Makes my skin crawl.

Itzy is great and multipurpose. The 'it's' factor is priceless.

What would Triggle have gotten us?


Damnit I don't hate Triggle anymore...
myungung 22nd-Aug-2019 01:52 pm (UTC)
fuck, these are great names for their album
goshipgurl 21st-Aug-2019 08:08 pm (UTC)
they're all bad and i still don't like the name itzy
k-companies are really bad at choosing good bandnames
sodapab 21st-Aug-2019 08:51 pm (UTC)
Why would you want to combine "triggle" and "giggle"? It seems so random lmao.
oh_folk 21st-Aug-2019 10:19 pm (UTC)
Stan Triggle.

i think a variation of purple heart would've been interesting.
queendom sounds really weird to me (and now there's that show too).

triggle, though...... why was that even a contender?? it makes me think of "trickle" which then makes me think of using the bathroom.

Triggle is the cutest but it would be such a weird name for them. ITZY is way better.
myungung 22nd-Aug-2019 01:51 pm (UTC)
pristin's impact for triggle! I do think triggle is pretty cute and fun, like I would laugh at it, but it sounds like a great name to call

itzy is really the better name though.
