What does Amazon mean?
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.
