Nominative determinism

I pass by this place every so often and I really wonder: What the hell were they thinking when they named it GOON Institute?? I mean, really, with a name like that, it doesn't matter if they pop out physicists or neuroscientists or whatever, a place called GOON Institute is simply NOT suggestive of higher learning of any sort! If anything, this is what pops into my head at the mention of GOON Institute:

So what do you call people who graduate from a place like this? GOONs? GOONies? DraGOONs? Ging Gang GOONies?
