Full name of AK-47 is Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947 (Automatic Kalashnikov 1947).

As per Wikipedia ” The AK-47, or AK as it is officially known (Russian: Автомат Калашниковаtranslit. Avtomat Kalashnikovalit. ‘Kalashnikov’s Automatic Rifle’), also known as the Kalashnikov, is a gas-operated, 7.62×39mm assault rifle, developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is the originating firearm of the Kalashnikov rifle (or “AK”) family. Design work on the AK-47 began in 1945. In 1946, the AK-47 was presented for official military trials, and in 1948, the fixed-stock version was introduced into active service with selected units of the Soviet Army. An early development of the design was the AKS (S—Skladnoy or “folding”), which was equipped with an under folding metal shoulder stock. In early 1949, the AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces and used by the majority of the member states of the Warsaw Pact.”
