I think the name's fine. I don't see "<4-letter word> is already taken" as
a valid argument, considering the huge number of users. There's a GitHub
user called "phobos" and one called "tools", etc.
Also, I'm pretty sure the D standard library is named after Mars's moon,
considering that D was originally named "Mars Programming Language" (after
the company name, "Digital Mars").
