Personally, if he is not willing to give up the name, I think we should simply take it. That might not be the nicest way of going about this but I think the event has been underdone for far too long now.
Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!
That's a prime opportunity to lose the moral high ground, right there. Even though I agree with your assessment of the problem that forces some solution, I don't think I agree with your solution.
I am hopeful that there could be some solution short of taking the name without blessings from those that have used the name in the past. Hopeful. If not, I think the players would see what was missing (in the underdone event) and begin the clamoring for a new, better version. Hopefully.
