It is *not* about taking ownership. Quite the contrary: Feel free to
babtise your SuSe-based work the exact same as that other work based on
The fact that I would not recommend you to do so is a different issue.
What is relevant is that if you did create a different work and called
it the same as the quite popular Fedora-based work, then I would not

Sugarlabs makes Sugar. And defines terms for what they make.
Let each distribution define terms for their works.
That is freedom.
