Indeed - Mr. Bagot - I think the best approach you have is write the Software name in full in all possible instances (e-mails, documents, letters, etc...) - just write "GNU Image Manipulation Program" - and leave the acronym as if it did not exist in all written documents. In my experience, name connotations are a matter os perception, and many times it just hit us in certain contexts - and may not bother our neighbors at all. For example, it was only when phrasing this paragraph I stopped to think about the sound of your last name would have in my native language, and the possible linked connotations - but just because I forced myself to think into it in this context. Just as I don expect a full 400 million Spanish speakers to think of me as a "good" person.
