the names are done as lyrics.  How can you space out lyrics ?

According to the documentation, you might get the impression that
      \override Score.LyricText  #'word-space = #2
should do the job, but it seems that word-space doesn't affect
the spacing between lyrics syllables. Bug!?

I think so. input/test/script-chart.ly also has extra lines after the names,
like this;
  \context Lyrics \lyricmode {
which I assume is also aimed at ensuring some space between words.

In addition, there was plenty of space between words in 2.4.x, so I think
this is a regression.

handling of texts changed since 2.4; I've removed the reference to lyrics from the docs of word-space. Try setting SeparationItem #'padding.
