Just have to say I like the alliteration of "No Rich Relative."
But any short acronymn is likely being used somewhere. Heck, I recall
reading somewhere that all two letter and almost all three letter (all but
perhaps a dozen) *.com domain names where already taken.
Even CIA can refer to Central Intelligence Agency, or Culinary Institute of
America. I knew someone once who was trained at the CIA, and he wasn't a
spy but a cook.
