        Some words are not trademarkable. Common use words...aren't. Trademarked words must be unique to a product and/or service.

          I don't think the military copyrights the names of their equipment.

          Besides, trademarks conflicts in the same or nearly the same field, mostly.

          As per the manual, "A patchy" ("A" as in "Uh").

                      Why the name "Apache"?

                      The name 'Apache' was chosen from respect for the Native American Indian tribe of Apache (Indé), well-known for their superior skills in warfare strategy and their inexhaustible endurance. For more information on the Apache Nation, we suggest searching Google, Northernlight, or AllTheWeb.

                      Secondarily, and more popularly (though incorrectly) accepted, it's a considered cute name which stuck. Apache is "A PAtCHy server". It was based on some existing code and a series of "patch files".
                      Directly from the FAQ in the manual.
