Names are also names for name's sake. See Firefox, Dolphin, Opera.
Of course Software Compilation does not work as well.

To answer your question: any name which does not contain generic terms like
"apps" and "bundle" would do. A single name, exactly like "Plasma".
In my work like, the main "product" is called "OpenStack" and each release is
a collection of services with their own names and their own version numbers
(Nova, Cinder, Swift, Oslo, etc) and everything is regularly packaged.
