If you've never really thought about what the acronym stands for, you're definitely not alone. As Harper's Bazaar UK pointed out, H&M stands for Hennes & Mauritz—but what's more interesting is how that name came about.
Back in 1947, H&M's founder originally named his women's clothing store Hennes, which is the Swedish word for "her." Then, as Harper's reports, the founder later merged his store with a brand called Mauritz Widforss and then combined the names to form Hennes & Mauritz. And now you have a fun fact to share at your next fashion party—you're welcome!
