This is basically how I chose the name “Grapefruit” for “my” FRP library. 
Okay, it refers to Fruit (a FRP GUI library) but the only further meaning 
of “Grapefruit” is that I find Grapefruits to be tasty. :-)  Often people 
choose meaningful names and convert them to acronyms, noone can pronounce.

Best wishes,
