From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  ML
  
     1.  Manipulator Language.  IBM language for handling
     robots.
  
     2.  Meta Language.  R. Milner  et al,
     1973.  A strict higher-order functional language.  It
     was the first language to include polymorphic typing which
     was statically-checked.  It also had garbage collection and
     a formal semantics.
  
     It began as the metalanguage for the Edinburgh LCF proof
     assistant.  (LCF="Logic for Computable Functions") People soon
     noticed that ML could be a useful general programming language
     and stand-alone versions were implemented.  Standard ML
     (SML) is a descendant of these (and related languages such as
     Hope).
  
     The "metalanguage" aspect has long since disappeared from the
     language itself (although there are some systems that still
     use it that way).  The historical name is now so inappropriate
     that asking what ML stands for is like asking what C or
     Unix stands for.  It doesn't stand for anything; it just is.
  
     LCF ML was implemented in Stanford LISP.  Cardelli (1981)
     implemented ML in Pascal using the Functional Abstract
     Machine (FAM).  It has been significantly redesigned to
     produce Standard ML and Lazy ML.
