RAB (I think this is the same guy ) had a great explanation for that in reply to this blog post actually.

"EDITOR'S NOTE: Sinestro's real name translates as 'left-handed' in the language of his home planet Korugar -- just as the word 'sinister' means 'left-handed' in English! Hal's ring automatically translates the name into the nearest English equivalent, just as it does for all alien languages he encounters!"
I don't care what future writer says, in my mind that will always be the explanation for Sinestro's name.
