Concept

On August 21st on the Cultwo Show, Yeji explained "[Itzy] means we have everything that everyone wants... There were a lot of names with a girl crush vibe suggested like 'Purple Heart,' 'Triggle' (a combination of the words 'trigger' and 'giggle'), and 'Queendom.' Producer J.Y. Park decided on 'ITZY' in the end."

ITZY comes from the common Korean phrase "itji" or "I have it".
