All that the official backstories give out is that it’s Sigmund’s surname and never say what it stands for, but it’s pretty obvious they’re a parody of SPECTRE from the James Bond films (and other similar spy organizations in fiction). Both are an “ultra-secret criminal organization”, founded by a balding “evil genius” with a small white pet (in this case a seagull instead of a persian cat), and are named after complex synonyms for “ghost”, as DerMagus pointed out. We don’t know what GHEIST stands for, though promotional art always shows it with dots like an acronym, but we do know what SPECTRE stands for. They’re the SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, as mentioned in the books.
So, taking a few letters here and there and rearranging, we get
GatHering for Extortion, Intelligence, Secrets, and Terrorism
We could also use stealing, sin, speculation, swindling, or slaughter for the S not present originally.
Like before, we have an opening word with 2 letters use and 4 descriptors of what the organization does
Hopefully, that still mantains the general spirit of the original acronym (pun most definitely intended).
The true meaning of GHEIST comes from James Bond movies, where the villain organization was called SPECTRE.
G(h)eist is a german word for ghost (geist is official, but gheist is also used), Spectre is a ghost too....
So, because there is a theme in the name by the meaning of word, it is very unlikely that it is acronym at all.
