But people aren't going to be thinking about governing TLPs when making
assumptions about a name.

Does this project actually relate to Lucene or not? Apache Connectors
Framework tells me it is either a generic connectors framework for
connecting anything to anything, or it is for connecting httpd to
something else, neither of which I suspect are what it is all about.

If the name is going to change (which sounds like a good idea) I'd
suggest going for something more abstract, to which you can give
meaning: Apache Connecto, or some such.
