Probably the same reason why the AHL team in Chicagoland is the Chicago Wolves and not the Rosemont Wolves. Because no one outside Rosemont cares about Rosemont.

If you're based in the outskirts of a major city, it'd be in your best interest to be named after that city. If Markham gets a team, only way that they're not named "Toronto" would be if the Leafs decided to lessen their indemnity demands for a new team (or stipulated that a new team couldn't be named after the city) as part of whatever agreement allowed them to move in in the first place.
