I think I agree with Joost. "New File" is short and to the point.

I've checked some other editors, and "New" is the most common. But, for
Emacs, this is somewhat confused by the presence of "New Window" and
"New Frame" (er, in the "File" menu...), so something else is needed.
But less is better, I think.
