Umm ... it's probably rude to reply to myself, but maybe

    Lua Uppercase Acronym

is a better, self-referential expansion of "LUA"

I consider it worse since it misses out on the message "I am wrong", the
actually innovative part.

I agree!

Moreover, its seriousness could even convince someone that Lua is actually to be spelled LUA (urgh! cough! cough! :-D).

You know, from the time of FORTRAN and BASIC, acronyms are like spells: yell it aloud (or litter your monthly report for the management with them) and all your problems magically go away :-)))
