How did Interscope Geffen A&M Records get their name?

Interscope Geffen A&M Records was established in 1999, following the PolyGram and MCA Music Entertainment merger (which created UMG). The label group was created by combining the PolyGram-owned A&M Records, the MCA labels Interscope Records and Geffen Records. The label operated as one of the newly formed Universal Music Group's four umbrella companies.
