I am confused. Why is a confusion matrix called a "Confusion Matrix"?

Best answer

 "Confusion" refers to the intuition that an item can be correctly or incorrectly labeled/identified/detected hence leading to the "confusion of labels".

It follows that the "confusion" in machine learning loosely refers to the idea: did our classifier correctly identify the item, or "was it CONFUSED with another label"?
