Umm, what?

For dyo, I could have gone for dyonysus, a variant spelling for the greek god of wine, but I like apodyopsis better :wink:.

Sorry, techie here. And it is a word, not a proper noun. I think.

If it is a proper noun, at least its a decent facsimile.

That's spelt Quagaars...

The only "uaa" in my dictionary is Quaalude, which is the trade name for some drug... and proper nouns aren't allowed...

Meh, it'll do.

Acquaintance, acquaint, quail. I can think of those three, but no proper nouns are coming to mind.

This is an aside, I didn't solve anything so I'm not going to post three more letters.
