Linux trademark advice needed!

I and a team of animators are developing a kid’s cartoon based
around the positive aspects of ‘geek culture’, and we would like to
name the main hacker kid ‘Linux’.

Will this infringe copyright?

The pilot has been commissioned by a major cable kids channel
(although character names at this stage are tentative), and I would
like to use the name to direct a younger generation’s attention to
Linux and the whole ‘open source Vs buggy profit mongers’ war.
