GIMP open source image editor forked to fix 'problematic' name

Just Enough

Re: Divide and rule

anyone knows that the name is an acronym

No they don't. And besides, what you are saying is that everyone who already uses GIMP, knows what GIMP means. When the issue is the reaction the name gets from people who don't already use GIMP.

Much of the reaction against a name change seems to be "I don't have a problem with the name, so you shouldn't either. And if you do, that's your problem. Silly snowflake." That's not how you encourage uptake of any product. The fact that GIMP is free doesn't change this.
