Tangentially flying off, am reminded of the alternative meanings given to
orders of chivalry / decorations handed out by Britain to their diplomats =
the Order of St Michael and St George. These progress according to
seniority from

Commander - CMG or ' Call Me Godly

Knight Commander - KCMG or 'Kindly Call Me Godly'

Grand Cross Commander -  GCMG* or 'God Calls Me Godly'

* usually only the Head of the British Diplomatic Service gets to be
a GCMG
