When George Mason University recently received a grant to rename its law school in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, it proudly announced it would be called Antonin Scalia School of Law.

But when online commentators pointed out that that meant students would be attending ASS Law or ASSoL, officials at the school decided to do some rearranging.

“The name initially announced—The Antonin Scalia School of Law—has caused some acronym controversy on social media,” Dean Henry N. Butler wrote in an email to students and alumni. “The Antonin Scalia Law School is a logical substitute.”

The $30 million grant for the renaming consists of $10 million Charles Koch Foundation and $20 million from an anonymous donor.
