Best Answer

Volleyball was originally named Mintonette. However, at the first demonstration game held before a congregation of YMCA Physical Education Directors in 1896, Professor Alfred T. Halstead observed the ball's unique volley action while in play and proposed to re-name the game after its visual characteristic. The congregation agreed to the name, Volley Ball. The name was later spelt as one word when in 1952, the US Volleyball Association voted in favour of doing so. Volleyball was originally named Mintonette.
