Sorry for the late reply - but that's not how naming works.  I would
suggest that the proposed podling works with their champion to figure out
if the name needs to be changed before incubation.  This isn't typically
how we do it.

Typically, a name needs to be in a related field.  If there was something
called "Cava" that also dealt with Blockchain or databases or similar, then
the name "Cava" would be an issue.  Just because a restaurant chain is
named Cava doesn't mean it's not a suitable name.
