Many everyday words are actually acronyms, although you may not know it, or may have never even thought about it. For example, the word laser actually stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, whilst the name of those delicious chocolatey treats, M&M's actually comes from the name Mars & Murrie’s.
Be mindful when selecting your acronym, as you don't want to be happily using an acronym which has alternative meanings. Newcastle University learned this the hard way when they caused quite a bit of offence after using what they thought was simple acronym for Central University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
