If you want the package name changed, you'll have to take it upstream,
since our policy is to follow the upstream name for package names.

But I don't think it is that bad. The package has

Name        : seahorse 
Summary     : A GNOME application for managing encryption keys
Description :
Seahorse is a graphical interface for managing and using encryption
keys. It also integrates with nautilus, gedit and other places for
encryption operations.

And the desktop file has

Name=Passwords and Encryption Keys
Comment=Manage your passwords and encryption keys
