Personally i think your choice of name is excellent. Prepending the
gnome- is pretty helpful as is appending the -applet. Although i think
you should explain what it does directly in the description; "Simple
gnome applet to change display settings (resolution, etc)"

And then include further explanation of everything it can do with XRandr
in the description. I think you might be right about the naming of
hardware-monitor, it is a very generic name.
