  These are the names of the Times clones donated by the URW++ foundry
to the Ghostscript project a long time ago.  They are freely available,
which the fonts called "Times" or "Times New Roman" are not.  If you
really don't want these names, you should either use commercial fonts,
or use the resources already mentioned to you to not embed the font in
the PDF file.  However, as the fonts are embedded in the PDF file, it
should really be readable by most PDF readers (why exactly do you insist
on having "standard names" -- whatever that means?)
