NACHO is acceptable, and it has an acceptable related anagram.
You can then add an A, and those letters make an uncommon 6-letter word.
Collins is the same as OWL2.

ANGA is an acceptable OWL2 word and it has 5 OWL2 front hooks and
two more Collins front hooks.

ONGA is not a word, but it has 3 OWL2 front hooks and three more
Collins front hooks.

There are three 1-word OWL2-acceptable US states, and one 2-word
state with both words being OWL2-acceptable.
