I also don't like "-ng" or even "blah2".

Specifically, I don't believe that a "new" project should launch with a 
nearly identical or derivative name.

If you feel like you'd want to call it "lang2" or "lang-ng" then just call 
it lang 2.0 or 3.0 or whatever and keep a lang-1.x branch around for 
stability fixes.

On the other hand, if you think it's different enough to warrant an 
entirely new name, like renaming "LDAP Studio" to "Directory Studio", then 
go ahead and do that.

Just my two cents...
