Post subject:  Initials

Hopefully this one will last you guys longer than 12 hours.

"In common with many other people I have two given games and one family name. My three initials from these three names run in arithmetical progression (they have a common difference) but this is not an unusual occurrence since I know of other people whose initials are so arranged."

"However, what is unusual is that the first and last initials differ in their numerical position in the alphabet by a perfect square and the ratio of their positions is also a perfect square. I don't intend to bore you by telling you my initials but only one set will fit the above conditions."

What might have been the name of this puzzler?
