Would the same policy applied as to, say, the Python add-ons? e.g.
"if the name starts with [pP]y then you don't need the python- prefix".

Please do NOT give it a name starting with "postgresql-". That would
cause great confusion because people couldn't tell which RPMs originate
with postgresql itself and which originate from other packages.
I don't see anything much wrong with "pgrouting" as the package name.
