Help Pick a new name for Safari Rover

I just received the same Unauthorized Use of Land Rover Trademarks letter from Land Rover North America. After speaking with the representing firm its clear that many of these letters went out. Looks like they're hitting nearly everything with Rover in the name.

Its time for a name change as I don't have the means to fight this one. Suggestions are welcomed.

So far we have.

If you pick my idea, do I get a free LHD bulkhead for my new 100 Hybrid project?

Could you do Safari Rovers - pural? I see how they own the Rover name but they can't own Rovers

LRNA is also registered with Rovers. Sucks as that would be the logical choice.

There used to be an outfit called Safari Automotive back in the 1970's - I think they were based in Colorado somewhere. I always thought that name had a good ring to it.

I like it, also like the idea of replacing rover with British. While def not as good as Rover, its one of the first things you think of.

The Landy suggesting is interesting, any trademark lawyers want to chime in?

I like that. It would be pretty awesome if everyone who got a letter just changed Rover to Rovr.

The problem with that is they could then try to argue that the pronunciation was the same. A stretch yes, but so is sending letters out for using a word that existed before they called it one half of their name. Its not the same as Jeep not existing before they smeared GP together (yes I've heard about the Popeye character too, I'm not buying it).

I think there is a valid fight here, but it would take a uniting of all the letter-receivers and some luck. I see the point of it not being worth it.

My friend @ the US Patent Office (not trademarks, but in the same realm) suggests

"Earth Roamers" then not in the name but below "specializing in Land Rover Parts" -
