It's not my own, but a lot of my friends over the years have played for the Korea Ultimate National Team. When they go to tournaments, the organisers always have to put their full name on everything.

Three Letter Accronym


Except that an acronym is a word made up of initial letters - eg NATO, COBRA.

TLA is an initialism (at least in English...)

Neither are, strictly speaking, abbreviations.

I run the utility dispatch center for my municipality. Currently we are called ECC (Energy Control Center). When I took over the idea was to change the name to make it seem less like we only handles electricity.

Our HR came up with some possible new names. A sweet older lady (who I have know doubt didn't even look at the acronym) came up with Central Utility Monitoring. I have a friend in engineering that decided to expand on that and he came up with the following:

Central Utility Monitering Service Hub Of Thomasville
