BASH is short term for Bourne Again SHell. It was written by Steve Bourne which was a replacement to the original Bourne Shell that was represented by /bin/sh.

BASH combines all the features from the original version of Bourne Shell, plus additional functions to make it easier and more convenient to use. It has since been adapted as the default shell for most systems running Linux.
