Conlang name conflict

I have decided to call my latest conlang _Mærik_, but a quick check on
Google revealed that this name is already in use at least by

- A conculture
- Its creator as his/her handle
- A band

all of whom may be somehow related.

The name is kind of important for the point of contact between
the alternative timeline and our timeline, since it appears as
the name of an unidentified people on a viking age runestone.

Alternative spellings are _Marik, Mæring, Maring_, but all of
these are either real surnames or someones handle -- in the
case of _Mæring_ the Yahoo handle of a medieval reenacter.

So what am I to do?  I note that people haven't let me have my
_Melroch_ handle alone!
