if we want witty and pronounceable, but perhaps too trivial:

MSGFI"X" - Multi Stakeholder Group Facilitating IANA Transition  -- MSG 
however is also an acronym for a preservative added to foods that give 
some people headaches.

I do like including the concept that were are not just meeting and 
making a decision, but facilitating the process by which the decision 

Are we really spending this many cycles on a name?

You'd be warmly welcome in our Honolulu meeting (Nov 9-14) for instance :-) Or our upcoming Toronto meeting that starts a day after the coordination group meeting in London ends. Future meetings are at http://www.ietf.org/meeting/upcoming.html We also have an IETF policy guest program run by ISOC, a very popular program and something that you might consider if you have not been to an IETF meeting earlier.
