I second Dirk, I'd use "sequence", for what you now name lists.
Still not convinced.
Other obvious names:
Sorry I lost the thread, are we talking about the python-like lists in
Penlight? is there really a strong reason that such a thing should be
present in ml. I'd start to question whether it passes the "Generality"
test when Lua tables are already used quite naturally as sequential arrays.
I'm not sure I see the rationale. If it's just to provide python-like
slicing then maybe a better approach is to add table:slice()
Or are these lazy lists? more like python generators or C++ iterators.
Changing the subject: ml seems a bit too much like ML to me (a well
known functional language with many subgenres).
