Default What's in a name?

Years ago, Harley Davidson made bikes with lots of letters in their model designation, one such was the XLCR. I have only just found out that it is actually pronounced as a word:

Excelsior

I always referred to it as the X L C R, I feel stupid.

The CR was for Cafe Racer if I recall correctly.
Should have been called the XLBS (Extra Large Bucket of Shyte)
