I disagree. For some time I've argued that we should drop the "GNOME".
Reasons for this:

1. App names should be consistent.
2. We generally don't expect users to know what GNOME is.
3. There are other, better, places we can advertise the project, if that's
what we want to do.

That’s for the name used in GNOME Software though, which is in the
AppStream data and as such is also the name that will be picked up by
other software catalog apps. Do you really want the KDE app store to
show “Music” as such, which could be misleading to their users?
