It doesn't stand for anything. It's a useless bureaucracy lead and maintained by the exact same people who caused the whole damn problem in the first place.

It took a bit of serching but I found this. "Nerv" is German for "nerve", following the pattern that Nerv's predecessor organization "Gehirn" is German for "brain", and Seele is German for "soul". The proper pronunciation is something along the lines of "nehrf", and it is phonetically approximated into Japanese as nerufu. The casts of the English dubs by ADV Films and Manga Entertainment do not provide as accurate a rendition: they simply say "nerv" exactly like the English word "nerve".

I knew Seele and Nerv, but don't remember Gehirn too much.

Nerv and Nerve are the same damn thing as far as I'm concerned, but the Seele and Gehirn is a useful set of information.
