I really like Markus's suggestion: 'newfound'.

I think it's unlikely that anyone will confuse this with the generic
English meaning of the word "newfound," as in "recently discovered."

Yes, I know. 

Given “nfld" I don’t think that “nfl[n]d" is much clearer. I think
n[ew]fld or n[ew]f[nd]ld would be a better, newfndld being quite
unambiguous. What do you think?
