    Could you tell me which word ID stands for?
    (identity or identification)
    Thank you.

    Re: ID

    Could be either one.

    ID is used (normally) in phrases like "ID Card" or "ID Badge". In both of these examples, either Identity Card/Badge or Identification Card/Badge would work.

    Re: ID

    Further to opa's excellent reply, ID can also mean identify.
