I agree that Lucene.Net is a better name.  It's more consistent with 
Lucene Java and Lucene4c, the names for other ports of Lucene.  I think 
it's okay to reclaim the name of an abandonded project, especially if 
the abandoned project is better known and is substantially similar.

The only problem would be if someone else felt that the name Lucene.Net 
was their property.  But the folks at don't 
use name Lucene.Net anymore.  Also, I owned and used the domain to refer to Apache's Lucene before the Sourceforge Lucene.Net 
project started in 8/03, which arguably gives me rights to the name:*/
