Questions about meanings of "raw image", "RAW", and "raw converter"

1. Is "raw image" a misnomer? I think I understand the term "raw data", but I am not sure if "raw image" makes good sense.

2. Exactly what does the single capitalized word "RAW" mean?

3. Precisely what is a "raw converter"? Does it just convert a raw data file into a viewable image to be used for further processing, or is it something more than that?
