D Day

Although many people refer to the Allied D-Day landings in Normandy as "Operation Overlord", the naval assault was actually called "Operation Neptune". The landings were originally known as Overlord, but in September 1943 the codename was changed to Neptune, and Overlord from then on was used to refer to the general Allied strategy in northwestern Europe.
And the D in D-Day stands for Day!
