Hi Carl,

quoting https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#pkgname:

"The name(s) of the package(s). This should consist of lowercase
alphanumerics and any of the following characters: @, ., _, +, - (at
symbol, dot, underscore, plus, hyphen). Names are not allowed to start
with hyphens. For the sake of consistency, pkgname should match the
name of the source tarball of the software: for instance, if the
software is in foobar-2.5.tar.gz, use pkgname=foobar. The name of the
directory containing the PKGBUILD should also match the pkgname."
