Thanks everyone, and thanks Jacqui, I think the safest thing to do would be to come up with a new variation of the name or brand, that way there are no issues. No point setting yourself up for trouble down the track hey? All the best, Charlile

Probably best to just come up with an entirely new name and not stress too much over the perceived awesomeness of the old name.
At the end of the day, while a great name is nice it has absolutely no bearing on how well your business will do. I could cite 1000s of examples of terrible names that are fronting incredibly successful businesses.
