Originally Billy's alter ego was called Captain Marvel. Shazam was the name of his mentor, a wizard.

DC Comics sued the original publisher of the comic book, saying it was a ripoff of Superman. The case was nicknamed Kent v. Batson. When DC re-introduced the character, there were other heroes named Captain Marvel, so they called him Shazam.
