Yes, that is typically a default Windows sub-folder that's located here:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64

However, it certainly wouldn't be surprising to hear of malware that tried to utilize the same name.

That being said, it seems much more likely that malware would try to copy its malicious payload into the SysWOW64 folder, just as it would the System32 folder on an x86 machine.
