I see no need to do that, eg zmq_msg_t is a good enough name. 
zmq_recv_msg is also OK IMHO. The understanding is that

here is an abbreviation to make spelling convenient on the keyboard.
The only issue is the natural language term which it abbreviates,
and the definition of that term in the ZMQ Standard.

There may be more of a problem in bindings which change that 
to zmq::message.
