It contains a proper name, namely B.V.D.. Also is G.H.Q. a name?

In my example with Mrs. 'X', that is a strech because she is an unknown.

Also, you state borrowing from another.

Full monoalphabetism is not required.
Your the boss, but I'd claim that both BVD and GHQ are abbreviations and therefore allowed. GHQ, of course, is General HeadQuarters.

As I said, check the sci.crypt archives for further information.
