Block lambdas is a proposal that combines block-based syntax with lambda-based semantics. There have been other proposals in the past which provide lambda semantics (i.e., TCP-respecting function literals) with different syntax. The syntax is a central part of the proposal, since it involves the completion value and the paren-free form. So I think the name is reasonable.
