To remove one electron from the atom we need to give enough energy to that electron. Also, when electron leaves, the atom becomes an ion. So, by definition, the energy required to remove the first valence electron of an atom is called first ionization energy or first ionization potential. If we will remove two electrons, we will need more energy and so that energy will be called second ionization energy or second ionization potential.
