There's an EU H2020 project starting soon called PALANTIR (Practical Autonomous Cyberhealth for resilient SMEs & Microenterprises) https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/883335. Of all the acronyms they could've chosen they went with PALANTIR - which is not only this powerful evil artefact in Lord of the Rings, but is also co-incidentally the name of a powerful evil company in this real world.
Maybe we should only use LotR names for project titles? I've come up with some likely proposals based on bullshit topics - but hey look they have cool titles!
