What does the "B" in B-splines stand for?

Oh, for some reason I always thought the B stood for Bernstein, but I think that relates to NURBs (a NURB is a B-spline that's formulated as the ratio of polynomials, non-uniform rational b-spline). I'm reading up on NURBs at the moment for a ship hull project, so I might be asking you three for help.
