We have those here in Seattle.
The DOT built a new streetcar line and named it the South Lake Union Trolley.
When someone screen printed a bunch of shirts with the acronym, the city council quickly named it something else.
I don't remember what it is now because it's unmemorable.

That looks like the sort of thing someone should have caught before they made the shirts.

Someone else did catch it and printed the shirts privately.
Much egg on faces in city hall.

Apparently they just changed "Trolley" to "Streetcar". Not nearly as fun a name.

It means an under aged female doing a prostitution act to an adult male.

No, I'm not joking. I'm serious.

https://www.weblio.jp/content/%E6%8F%B4%E4%BA%A4

EDIT, here is the Google translate:
A word that refers to women, especially underage students, to associate with adult men for financial purposes. Many cases are almost synonymous with prostitution, accompanied by sexual negotiations.

LOL so what is the word for "Halo'? I've seen that as Enkou also.

This name is getting better all the time!

Ah, I see how you got there. Halo translates to "円光". It reads "Enkou". Different Kanji. That one you had is "援交", which is what I explained earlier.
Meaning of Kanji for "円光" is "Circle Light".
Meaning of Kanji for "援交" is "Supporting Relationship".

But actually, I think there isn't any Japanese word that completely means "Halo". "円光" is a bright ring above angel's head. "Halo" also translates to "栄光", which reads "Eikou". This is a shiny light from afar or behind something great. Kind of like a light that shines from behind of the God. It's hard to explain. Kind of like THIS and THIS.

I love literal translation. It makes it impossible to carry on a conversation in real time, but the essence of the culture can be more understood.

When I saw OP's screenshot I knew this won't end well.

I feel like I should know this one. Tenshi, that is angels or heavenly messengers, don't have halos. The closest thing I can think of is the hagoromo(羽衣).
