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

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)
