You are mistaken. The name is not an acronym. The project Initiators chose a name. Then they thought about an acronym but decided against. Here is some information

https://www.cloudcomputing-insider.de/was-ist-das-projekt-gaia-x-a-881800/

“Der Projektname GAIA-X bezieht sich auf die griechische Erdgöttin. Dem Vernehmen nach haben die Projektgründer zunächst über ein entsprechendes Akronym nachgedacht, Begriffe wie „General Artificial Intelligence Architecture“ schließlich jedoch verworfen.”

Google translate gives:

“ The project name GAIA-X refers to the Greek earth goddess. According to reports, the project founders initially thought about an appropriate acronym, but finally rejected terms such as "General Artificial Intelligence Architecture".”
