Excel means calculator? PowerPoint means presentation software? Outlook
Well, at least they convey the message that whatever the software does, it's good: it "excels", it's "powerful", it gets the "point" across, etc. Even Outlook has a positive connotation, slightly related to one of its functions (its calendar) or to the fact that it has something to do with something "outside" the user's machine.
Whether a name is silly or not is partly a matter of taste. But I'd bet money that in a randomly chosen group of computer users, more people would judge "Ekiga" and "Gimp" to be silly names than Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook.
