EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. This valve recirculated the unburnt gasses from the exhaust to be burnt by your engine.

No, the name is correct but the description is wrong. The EGR introduces exhaust into the combustion process to lower combustion temperatures which reduces detonation and pinging and reduces NOX gases.
