How do I remove engraving from an aluminum pan?

I stupidly bought someone an engraved pan and they don't want it. It's a nice sturdy aluminum cake pan, so I'd like to remove the engraving and use it myself without looking like I'm in a baker's witness protection program. Most of what I could find online seemed to suggest I attack it with sandpapers of increasing fineness. Is this the best way?
I'm looking for an at-home solution if possible. I'm also okay with it looking scratched if that's the only way to obliterate the name, but I'd prefer a cleaner method.
It's one of these:
