Hai

UNIX comes from UNICS as mentioned "UNiplexed Information And Computing System.

Unix was coined by Brian Kernighan as a play on Multics,
a multi-user OS developed by GE and others (including, for
a time, Bell Labs). The idea was that Unix would run on
machines small enough for use by one person, an uncommon
thing three and a half decades ago.

Full form of UNIX is UNiplexed Information Computing System (UNICS), later known as UNIX.

Linux is the full name of the kernel. It was created as a combination of the phrase "Linus' Unix", after the original author, Linus Torvalds
