Application name strings consistency


Looking at the name the applications appear as both in Software and
the about dialogs, I spotted inconsistencies and I thought it would be
nice to fix that. Since we’re in string freeze, it’s too late to do it
for this cycle. We can however start discussing it and make a decision
regarding the correct way to do it.

Only picking a few to illustrate:
* Nautilus appears as Nautilus in Software, Files in about dialog

* Weather appears as Weather both in Software and in about dialog

* Terminal appears as Terminal in Software, GNOME Terminal in about dialog

* Maps appears as GNOME Maps in Software, Maps in about dialog
* Clocks appears as GNOME Clocks in Software, Clocks in about dialog
* Music appears as GNOME Music in Software, Music in about dialog
* Software appears as GNOME Software in Software, Software in about dialog

There may already be a guideline for this, I haven’t taken the time to
look it up. If it exists, it needs to be applied, maybe advertised as
well. If it doesn’t, it should probably be created.

Thoughts? Feedback?
