Well, I guess you could interpret the ISIS acronym as being something nebulous and forethought by some great, wise and powerful evil-doer in the
government (personally, I'd love that job!), but in terms of the usage of acronyms, there are many examples of acronyms having different connotations
- depending on which language you choose to define them.
BFF used to mean Binary File Format, but is more commonly recognized as Best Friends Forever;
OMG - used by law enforcement for Outlaw Motorcycle Gang;
BTW - British Traditional Wicca;
FML - Family Medical Leave;
the list goes on...
Of course, الدولة الإسلامية , Arabic for Islamic State, could likely be translated as some ancient representation for ham and cheese
And of course, there's those who will count the number of the letters and mathematically derive the solution to π * ∞.
Personally, I wouldn't spend too many brain-bytes twisting one's panties in a wad trying to uncover some hidden meaning. At the end of the day,
it's the actual group we need to worry about...unless you can come up with a neato, bandito counter-spell to dissolve them.
Now, that would be interesting!
