GPG would be a good choice. Considering that the acronym is formed
by using the same two letters which form PGP, it should be easy for
anyone to form a mental image which would make it easy to remember.
I vote for GPG.
If you really want to avoid any copyright/trademark issues later on,
what would be wrong with appending (or inserting) a numeral or special
character to GPG? Altering the TLA by adding something such as GPG3,
GPG7, G-PG or GPG& might protect you from getting in a tiff with some
company or corporation should the software become widely accepted. It
might also leave you with copyright/trademark options of your own.
