    Emacs is somewhat redundant.
    *About* would probably be fine.

"About Emacs" describes what it is. "About GNU Emacs" would be better,
providing a helpful reminder about GNU (but some will argue that GNU is
never needed in "GNU Emacs").

"Emacs" in "About Emacs" is not redundant in any way. If you have multiple
buffers, there is nothing that implies that one named only "About" has help
about Emacs.

Is it good or bad to use "*...*"? I don't know. I tend to think it's not
needed here.
