You can take a look at Microsoft Namespace Naming Guidelines 


Following their guide our codename is Apache.Avalon
I don't think there will be any problems.
Everything is correct, isn't it?

I'm sure they know what Avalon is perfectly well.
While .NET was being designed they made analysis of C++, Delphi, Java and 
all existing solutions. 

Open Source is an inseparable part of Java and so no doubt they analyzed it 
I think they would have never created ASP.NET if they hadn't even taken a 
look at jakarta-structs for example and so on ... 

I don't consider it is a coincidence, just analyzing. 

They even tried to create their own Component Model, but I think it is ugly 
(just my opinion), Avalon is much better than they did.
