Not for me. They give me a false impression of what they mean, which is worse than no impression at all.

Try to see it from a different perspective: Spirit.Lex is a sub-library, like Phoenix was a sub-library from Spirit, that is really different from Spirit itself. But Spirit.Qi and Spirit.Karma really "are" Spirit, they are not sub-libraries in the same sense as Phoenix or Spirit.Lex. So it makes sense that they have "Spirit-like" names.
