Bash stands for Bourne Again Shell,  (If I understand this correctly)
Just to add its called than because its a 'development' of the Bourne shell which is on of the earlier shells (written by someone called "Bourne") and it came to 'fame' as it was the shell used in Kernighan and Pikes seminal (?) book 'The Unix Programming Environment' which was from the days when books smelt - I can still smell that one typing its name!
