There is no need to change the name Falak, because the two meanings you mentioned are for two completely different words. One of them is Falak, written as فلك in Arabic, which is a good name whose meaning you can see here: Falak
The other word is Falaq, written as فلق, which means "hellfire" and has other negative meanings.
These two words come from two different roots and have no relation with each other, for this reason there is no need to change the name.
