Amazon.com was founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos, a former Wall Street hedge fund executive. Initially, he chose the name ‘Cadabra Inc,’ derived from the magical phrase Abracadabra. He later chose the name Amazon for his company, which is named after the world’s greatest river.

He chose this name since it began with the first letter of the alphabet and was associated with a massive South American river.
