It is not unusual for an Apache project name to be a brand and domain in another field of
use.

Try these:
Tomcat.com -> baited rodent traps
Spark.com -> dating site
Camel.com -> tobacco
Geronimo.com -> help for non-profits
Sling.com -> live tv streaming
Jackrabbit.com -> athletic apparel

Best Regards,
Dave
