We should fix application names.

Please see the following thread for a detailed discussion:

Some general rules:

  • Desktop file Name value, application menu (for gnome-shell), titlebar (for gnome 2), documentation, and about dialog should all use the same name
  • Desktop file Name value should be the simple "brand" name unless the application is a core GNOME built-in and does not have an external brand identity (web site, online help, etc)
