Uhhh...As far as I know, Sander gave all AF rights to Amanda Somerville. So, there was no chance of Floor going on with that name. 

Has this been discussed publicly or is this just speculation? This is news to me since Floor herself said in more than one interview that the Transmission Records owner went into bankruptcy and sold it to his wife for a really low price. That she and the band members even tried to to go to court to get the rights, but there were no chances.

I don't think that this is true (although it would seem that Amanda had had a "stake" in the fate of AF). The After Forever trademark still seems to be registered on Sander. I'm copying the excerpt from the Benelux trademark register for your info below. Interestingly, the trademark seems to have been renewed in 2012. I think that this also answers the question why Floor would not have been able to carry on with AF on her own back in the days. While Transmission obviously seems to own the rights to the albums before the self-titled album, I wonder if they could have released the remastered versions without his consent - probably not, but this is speculation on my end.
