At first I too thought that it was "Universal Resource Locator" but
according to the Canadian INTERNET Handbook and Netscape:
To understand how a single page is kept distinct in a world of electronic pages,
you ought to recognize its URL, short for Uniform Resource Locator. Every page
has a unique URL just like every person has a unique palm print. (Arguments
persist as to which is more cryptic.)
