The HIG says you should name it "Foo Web Browser" "Foo Text Editor"
etc. with maybe an escape hatch for things like Calculator that don't
need a Foo.

I don't really think Foo=GNOME is appropriate; apps should be able to
run under any desktop, and it's confusing if an app has the same name
as the desktop environment in that case. gnome-foo is fine when
something's part of a desktop or if something is a Calculator
(Foo=nothing), but seems silly for big applications.

"Epiphany Web Browser" is a good name IMO.
