So, courtesy of #11's great interview, Gregg Wilson says it's SPECTRE (no matter what Wikipedia or IMDb might think!)

Ah yes, forgot to post it here:

My belief is that it's SPECTRE, despite never being explicitly explained.

I was inclined to agree, but I just got the Blood, Sweat and Bond book, which uses Spectre throughout as the title of the film and the name of the organization. So it's still not clear to me which is "official."

I'd go with SPECTRE. It's funny I had argument with a guy awhile back and he kept telling me why I kept capitalizing SPECTRE. Until I said that it's acronym and he never commented back when I corrected him. It just goes to show who is a real Bond fan right?

It's interesting how in a 2 1/2 film there is no explanation for the meaning of Spectre.  Blofeld could have explained it to Bond instead of bragging about how he killed Vesper and M.

Yes, very much agree with this. I think Blofeld's dialogue was one of the poorest parts of SPECTRE.

Yeah, good point. This movie's incarnation of the organisation maybe just a word and not an acronym, thus answering the thread question.
