As Grimes said it's not OTAN because it's reversed, it comes from the way the name of the organization is spelled in Spanish, Italian and French, possibly in other languages too. In Spanish it is "Organización del Tratado Atlántico Norte".

Actually an awesome question... I had always immediately assumed it was NATO backwards for ease of identification. (But really, if you think about it... if you can see "OTAN" in the mirrors of your tactical jet you're probably about to collide, not identify. :D)
