The reason why @home is instantly recognizable is the exact same
reason it's probably a trademark infringement to use it!

Yes... you absolutely have to make a marketing effort to establish a
new brand... that's why trademarks get protected status. You can't
trade on an brand of an established mark. Nor do you want other's to
make use of the value of the brand of the marks you establish without
your permission.
