On enough occasions, I've been a little disappointed to find that a name I like for a new typeface has already been used. With the saturation of the market having so many fonts, it can be a challenge to not only think of a fitting name but to also do enough searching to see if it's available and find that it actually is. Of course, I could make up a word or alter the spelling of it that's not common, but sometimes a common word is nice. (I know you see this in business and other industries in general.)
So I'm wondering, what seems passable for making a name different enough if it's already in use in some form. For example (making this up): I might like the name Leafy, but it's already out there on a free font site (no ™ or anything). So would Leafy Script or Leafy Sans be enough to claim it without any real issues (assuming it's not too similar looking)?
