First, I thought this was one of those results of trademark rights, but it seems all european trademarks for sporks that are cutlery are expired
(contrary to what Wikipedia says).
The EU trademark register
know about a "aerated mineral water" from Luxemburg and the UK Intellectual Property Office
lists shovels and spades from Oxfordshire. In the US
there at least are some "biodegradable knives, forks and spoons" called "Pick Spork" from Ohio and artificial turf and carpets from Georgia.
So, why don't you call a spork a spork?
