There are many stories about where this word came from.Probably the most popular notion has it that the vehicle bore the designation "GP" (for "General Purpose"), which was phonetically slurred into this word. R. Lee Ermey, on his television series Mail Call, disputes this, saying that the vehicle was designed for specific duties, was never referred to as "General Purpose," and that the name may have been derived from Ford's nomenclature referring to the vehicle as GP (G for government-use, and P to designate its 80-inch-wheelbase). It was used by soldiers as a slang word for new recruits, an airplane, a tractor used for hauling heavy equipment, and an autogyro. How do we know this word/ brand name now which is used rather generically by all of us?
