More than what you want to know:
Jeep - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not a Jeep historian (like I am VW) so not sure how accurate some of the finer details are, but this gives an idea. Basically, they are mainly model years. Basically. Or something. Yeah....

CJ was a model name followed by a number.

the YJ was an in house name for the platform the 88-95 Wrangler was based on also called the Yuppy Jeep

TJ 97-06 Wrangler, also called the Trendy Jeep

JK 07-current also called the Joke (though i like JKs and wouldn't mind a JK(U) unlimited aka 4 door for a dd)

DJ was already used and is the actual name of the Jeep like the CJ which is Civilian Jeep. The DJ stands for Dispatcher Jeep if memory serves me correctly. Also known as the mail jeep. The Jeep Wiki breaks every Jeep made to date very very very well and I refer you to that. As to most of the Jeep alphabet the letters are just part of a platform design code or something on that line.
