What would you name any project?... Voting to close –  Tom Squires Nov 1 '11 at 15:51
Naming things is clearly off-topic. –  Yannis Rizos Nov 1 '11 at 15:55

I don't think there is a fixed convention per se. I would take my cue off of the java project names. For example:

  • log4j to log4net
  • jUnit to nUnit
  • Lucene to Lucene.NET

I'd gene relay reserve the -sharp for greener field stuff rather than ports but I think that is personal preference.
