I like the wordplay in "LangCon", but feel it's too subtle and
obscures the fact that it's a conlang con and not a general
language/linguistics con.  But other conventions exist that put the
"con" first in the name, so why not just call it ConLang?  That makes
the association more explicit, at least to anyone who has heard the
term "conlang".
