What does Amazon mean?

Amazon Amazon is an American multinational electronic commerce company founded in 1994, by Jeff Bezos. The company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, United States. Jeff Bezos wanted a name for his company that began with “A” so that it would appear early in alphabetic order. He began looking through the dictionary and settled on “Amazon” because it was a place that was “exotic and different” and it was the river he considered the biggest in the world, as he hoped his company would be. The A to Z arrow mark on the Amazon logo suggests that you can buy everything from A to Z on Amazon.
