I agree with the original concern that "following" can be too-easily read as "immediately following".  But not sure "subsequent" is an improvement.  I also suspect that "later" could be confusing, because it properly refers to time relationships and we're talking about spatial relationships.

>From a plain-language perspective, my vote would be for "Any-Following-Sibling Combinator".

These are definitions, not syntax that people actually have to type on a regular basis, so clarity should win out over compactness.
