There are other reasons you might not want to use this name.

One is conflicts with other popular programs (you want your program to
be co-installable alongside other packages).

Another one is that we'd prefer you to not use a name that sounds very
official for a very unofficial project. We decided to add "aur" to our
blacklist. Feel free to reupload your package under another name.
