I am comparing results from a program written in Matlab to one written in Labview, so I want to create structures named Matlab and Labview containing the program outputs. matlab.m exists on my path as a readme type of file with no code in it, so no conflict there. Are there any conflicts with existing functions etc. to beware of if I use Matlab and Labview as structure names?

There is a package named matlab that some functionality in MATLAB uses (such as the unit testing framework matlab.unittest package) so I'd recommend using a different name. Perhaps "matlabresults" would be a better name, or maybe a "results" struct with fields named matlab and labview?
