Do you mean Hungarian notation? Here is a link to an MS site, as far as I know the original hungarian notation was developed by someone who worked at MS. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnvsgen/html/hunganotat.asp For more info you can do a search on google or yahoo and use "hungarian notation" as the search words.
As far as JAVA being an abbreviation for something I donth think it is. Orginally the language was to be called Oak (I think) and the name was later changed to Java. Maybe do a search on Sun's site.
hope that helps

You're correct in the Oak part, and I believe that the Java came from the fact that they were using the language to program coffee makers, and it just grew from there.

For professional Java coding, the standard is pretty much NOT to use Hungarian notation so I suggest that you follow that instead. But if you don't mind getting called derisive names by real, professional Java programmers...
Charles Simonyi of Microsoft came up with the idea of adding the little warts to program identifiers. It worked OK in C/C++ I guess but some people just don't know when to stop. BTW, Simonyi is Hungarian, thus the name for the notation.
