People too do change their names because of that - just it's a process more complex than changing a software name. It doesn't look to me that the switch from "OpenOffice" to "LibreOffice" caused much trouble, despite the fork name being more stupid and ideological.

A friend of mine not long ago change its last name because in our language it had the same meaning of "tit\teat". And he was really tired about it and didn't want to inflict it upon his children.
