Why change it at all?
The current name is functional, meaningful and clear and features no puns
involving Gnu Gnome KDE or QT.  Usability applies to names too.  The name
is pretty close to perfect.

of the alternatives libtoaster would be the one I dislike least, as there
have been a variety of CD Burning related applications making refernce to
toast and so at least some people will be able to guess what libtoast is
for simply by looking at the name.

change purely for the sake of change is not a good idea.

The name Coaster does not exactly inspire confidence either, but hopefully
it is so good and stable and not produce any coasters that users will see
the funny side.
