    Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

    My Dictionary says
    double entendre means "An ambiguity with one interpretation that is indelicate", whereas question was about a word having two meanings.

    Ok I found it.
