--name would be bad. There is a reason for naming packages in certain 
way. If you don't agree with that, edit changelog and control and 
prepare to defend your choice :)

As for META.yml, which version of dh-make-perl you tried last? The 
current one uses CPAN methds for finding dependencies and I think this 
includes META stuff. "dh-make-perl --cpan Foo-Bar"
