How about CommonMarkD / Common MarkD (pronounced "mark-dee"). An 
indication of the heritage with the original markdown; and no confusion 
with the now defunct Deutsch Mark. Who knows when it may resurrect? :-)

Just my 2 cents as a user and really appreciate all the work that so 
many people put into it, in particular John MacFarlane.

Best regards,
