`spread-self` and `splay-self` don't make sense to me (same for 
`distribute-self`). Also (as a non-native speaker) I've never heard 
the word splay so far.

'arrange' might be misspelled as 'arange' and, as @MatsPalmgren 
mentioned, it may also be misinterpreted.

So I vote for `place-*`.

The names `{align,justify}-{items,content}` are already bad choices. I
 always forget whether I need to use `align-*` or `justify-*` and 
whether to use `*-items` or `*-content`.<br/>
I'd love to see **them** bikeshedded, but unfortunately it's already 
too late to change them.
