Suggestion: Lm = Quinta das Lamelas
Fine by me.

Also, I for Infantado doesn’t fit the general pattern of reserving the few single-letter names for the few ancient famous blends of large volume and fame. Should it be In or If or It or Id? Unless there’s strong and quick dissent, it’s going to be In.

In works better than any of those alternatives.

No. Consonants give gravitas and structure. Only vowels only when really necessary.

Are Eq and Ec not included because Eufemia doesn't (often? ever?) produce VP?

Question posed primarily due to the unique difficulty with naming the split house(s).

As you say: no VP, no need. Do suggest — though it’s too late to go in the canonical list in The Book.
