    D-day. The unnamed day on which a particular operation commences or is to commence

    Unfortunately, we found little mention about the literal meaning of the term "D-Day." Several sites noted that it was a code name for the actual day of the invasion, but none seemed willing to elaborate.

    I don't think it stands for anything, just a code name. I think that every amphibious landing Americans achieved during the second world war were also called "D-Days"

    The “D” does not stand for "Deliverance", "Doom", "Debarkation" or similar words. In fact, it does not stand for anything. The “D” is derived from the word "Day". “D-Day” means the day on which a military operation begins. The term "D-Day" has been used for many different operations, but it is now generally only used to refer to the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944.

    D-Day, like H-Hour, is just a way to designate a starting time.
