"Dfinity" vs ICP vs Dfinity Foundation

Is “Dfinity” a reference to the Dfinity Foundation or what exactly is it. Sometimes it seems like it’s interchangeable with “ICP” and sometimes a reference to an organization.

the original name of the blockchain was “dfinity” or the dfinity network and the foundation was the dfinity foundation. They renamed the blockchain to Internet Computer but kept the foundation name Dfinity, though I believe there is an Internet Computer foundation now also. why they chose to rename it to Internet Computer is something that I will never understand.

What on online search is like:
ICP - insane clown posse
IC - Random nonsense
Motoko - Ghost in the Shell cosplay
Internet Computer - Everything about internet and computers

actually if you compare name quality amazon would be named E-Commerce Platform. lmao

it took year for peoples to recognize the word amazon as an ecommerce platform so i bet that be the same with the icp.
