I agree claiming "Math" is a non-starter.

I'm now on the fence with regard to "Commons Math". We don't want to
prevent other communities creating their own "Community Commons Foo" and
Foo==Math or Foo==Lang are likely things they will want to create. On
the other hand, "Commons Math" is a frequently used shortening for
"Apache Commons Math". I'm really not sure what is the best thing to do
