facronym

noun; blending
A word (formed from the initial letters of a name with multiple words) for an organization, device, or idea with a specialized function or with a name composed of many polysyllabic words. For humorous effect, the writer on this television show chose to coin a new word for acronyms whose meanings are unusually sesquipedalian.
 
I'm really good at facronyms.
Etymology : 'fact' (something demonstrated to exist or to have existed) + 'acronym' (word formed from the initial letters of a name with multiple words) ['ac/acer/acr' (sharp, tip, extremities) + 'onym' (name)]
