Is there an abbreviation for 人名用漢字, i.e. character set for names?

I'm looking for anything shorter, really; It can be English or Japanese, as long as it's widely recognised. For example like Tel for telephone number or like for 男性

The 新漢和大辞典 uses the following shorthand:

  • 〔人名〕 jinmeiyō kanji
  • 〔常4〕 jōyō kanji, grade 4

Depending on the context, 人名 or 人名用 could work as "abbreviation" for indicating that a particular kanji belongs to the set of jinmeiyō kanji.
