SARUTOGRAMA
Explanation:
I would not mind using KISSOGRAM as is. Making up a local version of such an oddity often produces a bastardized style without promoting a ready understanding of the intention. But if you insist, SARUTOGRAMA should do.

Note: Of course, the proper vowels should be used. I forgot the code for A with a hat.
