I do not think it is worth to spend too much energy on this one. So far this project has produced a lot of documents without too much content. Without massive funding it will not make an impact.

So I completely understand the ‘Bingo’ comparison.

Gaia is also used for different projects like ESA’s Global Astrometric Interferometer for Astrophysics.

There clearly the acronym was chosen later. This spacecraft is looking at the Milky Way.

Here I looked at the statements of the politicians and why they chose a project name.
