I agree; going for acronyms does no good, although it is a (dubitable) 
open-source tradition - just a play with words that no one takes seriously.
Speaking of obsidian (nice name), I have two more monerals with cute names 
and some other:

* eklogit
* skarn
* Isis (egyptian mythology)
* Nemesis (greek mythology)
* (Democrite, Leukippos, Newton, Oppenheimer (Oppie would be nice for 
abbreviation, but program Opie already exists) - we had those on the IRC)

BTW, Yade in Czech (with the english pronounciation, the "e" being dumb) 
means poison (jed).
