The name Pakistan (Urdu) means Land of (the) Pure in Urdu and Persian (Farsi). It was coined in 1934 as Pakstan by Choudhary Rahmat Ali, who published it in his pamphlet Now or Never. ] The name is a portmanteau representing the "thirty million Muslims of PAKISTAN, who live in the five Northern Units of British Raj Punjab, Afghania (now known as North-West Frontier Province), Kashmir, Sindh, and Balochistan."[

It is your convenience to make abbreviation of your own, such as P for Pawan and P for Pakistan. However, ongoing abbre for Pakistan mostly are PAK or PK.
