"AMG" stand for Aufrecht, Melcher, and Großaspach.

Normally, the "K" in GLK, SLK, CLK stands for "kompact" which is a compact version of the GL, SL, and CL.

the "L" usually indicates "Long" or "Light",

the vehicles are:
A-Class – Hatchback
B-Class – Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV)
C-Class – Saloon, Estate & Coupé
CL-Class – Luxury Coupé
CLA-Class – 4 Door Coupé
CLS-Class – 4 Door Coupé
E-Class – Saloon, Estate, Coupé and Cabriolet
G-Class – Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV)
GL-Class – Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV)
GLA-Class – Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV)
GLK-Class – Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV)
M-Class – Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV)
R-Class – Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV)
S-Class – Luxury Sedan
SL-Class – Roadster
SLK-Class – Roadster
SLS AMG – Coupé and Roadster
Viano – Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV)

Cheers!
