You're certainly good at this game. Like Carlos, I like SQUAT :)

Our best suggestion that we've come up with:
Get Amber Useful for Solving Semiempirical Integrals in Atomic and Nuclear
systems *GAUSSIAN*

Although I think that name might be taken, but perhaps the current owner is
willing to share?

Other suggestions thrown around here if that doesn't work out:

Biological Electronic Structure Tool (Biology, Biosystems, etc.) *BEST*
Q (star trek reference)
Biosystems Electronic Energy Solver *BEES*
Semiempirical QUantum for AmberTools *SQUAT*
QUantum Electronic STructure *QUEST*
Semiempirical Package for Energy Computation in Amber {Line?} *SPECIAL*
Generalized Electronic Energy Solving Engine *GEESE*
