AIDS was first called GRID. Gay Related Immune Deficiency.
No it wasn't.  It was initially called Kaposi's Sarcoma and Opportunistic Infections (KSOI) in 1981.  GRID didn't show up until 1982, and was replaced by AIDS in that same year when it became clear that the disease was not limited to homosexuals. 

GRID wasn't the first name, it wasn't the last name, it wasn't an accurate name, and it wasn't a particularly long-lived name.  Do your research before making stupid threads.
