Answer 1
The Arabic word 'Islam' simply means 'submission', and derives from a word meaning 'peace'. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God. 'Allah' is the Arabic name for God, which is used to refer to God by Muslims who speak Arabic and those who speak other languages, including English.

Answer 2

Islam derives from the root S-L-M (س-ل-م), which also forms the basis of the words SaLaaM (سلام) and istiSLaaM (إستسلام) which respectively mean "peace" and "surrender". As a result, there is often a debate as to whether it means peace or surrender. The word actually refers to "surrender/submission to God", which Islam argues creates an inner peace and, when the entire community surrenders to God, an outer peace as well.
