The name reminds me of a wrong-headed name tale from history, CinCUS (pronounced "Sink Us").

In early 1941, James Richardson was serving as Commander in Chief, United States Fleet (CinCUS).

He repeatedly warned superiors that their deployment of our Pacific fleet to Pearl Harbor was a mistake.

Our idle ships were too easy a target for Japanese bombers.

Richardson was fired 10 months before December 7.
