RGB for screen displays, RYB for optics ;)

And CMY for printers.

Not sure where RYBG comes from though? (No, it couldn't be... Could it...?)

Ha, of course!

Although it has a bit more history than that — da Vinci used RYBG as his colour model, adding black and white too. See the section on da Vinci on http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.ac.uk/ie/Colour_an_Introduction/Colour%20an%20Introduction-188.htm
