Unless another explanation exists, I believe this is the correct one.

A4 is of German origin. It was originally DIN (Deutsche Industrie
Normalitaet) A4. DIN stands for German Industry Norms, similar to ANSI;
American National Standards Institute.

I need not go into postwar European history, however A4 became the adopted
norm for the European Common Market.

If I am incorrect, accept my apologies now.
