They have symmetry in their favor, and look significantly better to me than any of the other alternative short names.

I also vote for option 2 for the syntax; independent of colons being more like Common Lisp and Clojure, I think using one somewhere in the symbols makes keywords visually stand out a lot better.

Of that list I favor call/kw (and lambda/kw) the best.

To clarify, any of these names would be fine with me:

* kcall
* kwcall
* kw-call
* call/kw
* keyword-call
