We need a name that is broader.

The more I think, the more "Mystic" doesn't seem so terrible. Not really a caster, but someone that does weird supernatural stuff, and even base monk has a lot of that.

"Mystic" isn't a bad choice, but doesn't really reference the martial arts aspect. Perhaps "Mystic Fist" would be better.

The martial aspect isn't really the main story focus of the monk in a lot of cases... they're seeking perfection and find martial ability along the way, so I don't really think that there needs to be an implicit reference to it. It's not like Fighter where martial arts is the core of their concept.
