Multiple people sent me an explanation of where Rabobank got its name. Here’s the origin…

Two Dutch banks, Coöperatieve Centrale Raiffeisen-Bank in Utrecht and Coöperatieve Centrale Boerenleenbank in Eindhoven, merged in 1972. The name Rabobank is a portmanteau of RA iffeisen-BO erenleen BANK.

The organisation chose Amsterdam to be its statutory headquarter due to the historical neutrality in relation to the founding organisations. As of 1980 the central organisation is referred to as Rabobank Nederland.
