It is not meant to be provocative.  It is named after the animal and is 
not an acronym.  It also provides a convenient name for the query 
language, "Pig Latin".  I'm sure that the developers would have some 
regret about changing the name, but if it were truly determined to be 
offensive then I believe there would be a willingness to change it.
