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.

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

luckily they were smart enough to not do that, regardless of whatever meaning they had come up with for it!
