The name "Geode" was thought up by the Geode contributors at Pivotal.  

Pivotal legal did a pretty extensive trademark search to ensure there would 
be no infringement.  It was their opinion that there  is low risk of trademark 
infringement with the AMD product.

However, its fully understandable that Apache legal needs to vet the name 
of the project should it be accepted for incubation.
