 When it comes to the incubator, does the project's name need to change?

Only if the name is a trademark from another software product where
confusion might arise, or we (the foundation) are unable to own the
name as a trademark.

What we (The ASF) want is to own the project—including its name. So
when moving to The ASF, the trademark of the project name has to
transfer as well.
