It's the actual stand that's called 'THE KOP' it was named after Spion Kop, a battle during the Boer War in which many Liverpool born soldiers died, the original mound of cinders which stood where it was built resembled the hill on which the battle was fought.

Kop End... The Spion Kop, apparently in the early history of Anfield there was just a steep hill which reminded Boar War veterans of the Spion Kop in South Africa, the scene of a famous battle.
