An acrostic is when the first letters of a name are used to form a proper word. This is not quite the same as an acronym, since
an acronym doen't have to be a valid word. So an acrostic of No Doubt's "Just A Girl" would form the word Jag, but their song "Excuse Me Mr." would
form EMM, which isn't a word. Acrostics are generally found in poetry where the first letter of each line is used to form a word.
