Let's pretend Aleister Crowley was a stock or commodity for a moment. To trade ALEISTER on the open markets we need to come up with an abbreviation or handle that is instantly recognizable and easy to remember, perhaps even funny or clever, or veiled. If you could only use three letters to create an abbreviation for the name ALEISTER what would those three letters be?

Examples of excellent 3 letter abbreviations:

MGK = Magick

BTC = Bitcoin

GLD = Gold

SLV = Silver

TKO = Technical knockout

EPS = Earning per share

XTC = Ecstasy

OTC = Over the counter

IPO = Initial public offering

LOL = Laughing out loud

ETC = et cetera

I'm only looking to abbreviate the name Aleister and nothing else.

Any ideas?

ALC would be the obvious one, but that is often used for Alcohol. The abbreviation for Aleister, ALE, is the beer.

An alternative is TMT: To Mega Therion.

Nice to see you back Mr Michael @elitemachinery

 

In my humble opinion AST would be a good one, as it is not only the main phonemes in his name minus the R, it is reminiscent of astron for star.  Astron Argon

ALE being the best

TMT is strong

ALE - as in Crowley's ALE ... and ALE (ister.

This one is the most obvious and straight forward and would be great if you were creating a beverage company or beer company named Aleister.

ALE=Aleister

It is similar to the abbreviation for et cetera using the first 3 letters. Sometimes this is the easiest and simplest solution and this is one I didn't think of.

My question was and is looking for ideas but was also a bit leading as I have ideas of my own. It's hypothetical in that I don't intend to start a company or such.

Leading because I have ideas of my own...but I wanted to see what others would suggest.

If we take the abbreviation for ecstasy it uses an "X" in place of "ecs" and "c" in place of "sy"

So the abbreviation of ecstasy is phonetic: ecstasy becomes XTC.

If we attempt a phonetic version of Aleister what might we find?

Ale-is-ter

Ale=al=L phonetically

is=s=S phonetically

ter=tr phonetically

if we had to choose one letter for "tr" we could choose T

the result of a phonetic ALEISTER could therefore be:

LST (similar to"Alice Tea"or Tea with Alice)

then again LSD sounds a lot like LST and Alice Tea

and it's funnier and although Crowley's family had a beer company, Aleister was associated with drugs and drug use in a big way.

Aleister=LSD is that too veiled or far out for Aleister?

I like LST more than LSD just because people would get the wrong impression perhaps

Yeah, LSD for Aleister is stupid. Why mix brands?

Personally I think AC is perfect. Why not 666? or EAC (Edward Alexander Crowley)?

Good catch...if not does not necessarily equal not, then two is not two either (I suppose)

Anyways LVX may be the real winner, good suggestion, but I suppose the Enochian spheres might be  candidates awaiting further invocation!

OK some good suggestions. If I had a beer or drink company called "Aleister Inc" the stock ticker would be ALE and the various beers/drinks would have names such as:

NOT - non alcohol

666 - whiskey mixer

LVX - hard lemonade

VVV - vodka mixer

LSD - hard fruit punch

TMT - stronger beer

AWZ - retro flavor beer

NRG - energy drink

as for a ticker for a company or physical commodity I personally think 666. AWZ. LSD, and ALE are the most representative of what AC was about...but it would depend on how the company or commodity functioned and what purpose it held. 

Feel free to disagree.

Incidentally there is a beer named Aleister made by a company in Chicago and according to the website it is definitely named after AC.

ALEISTER® IPA
America-Style India Pale Ale

Dry in the beginning, with a nice malt middle and a huge hop finish, this big I.P.A. brings notes of from the large amounts of Amarillo hops and bright fruit and citrus. “Miiiiiiiiister Crowley!!! What went wrong in your head? Oh, Mr. Crowley, did you talk with the dead???

There is also Thelema Vineyards of Zambia (or perhaps South Africa); not sure if they make sweet wines, but there seem to be no wines that foam.

They take their name from Rabelais, not AC, or at least that's the story for the cowans.
