I found this definition of F stop here F Stop Quoted.....
"The F number is the ratio between the size of the aperture and the focal length of the lens. This F "stop" is determined by taking the focal length of the lens divided by the diameter of the aperture (in millimeters)....."

I believe it stands for Focal.
