The error message is slightly mistaken for one edge case...

We no longer allow plugins that contain "WordPress" in their name. It
is, after all, slightly redundant.

Try choosing a better name. And remember, a "name" is not the same
thing as a "description". Too many people don't put any effort into
naming, IMO.
