The thread for the first of these satellites has indicated that an alternative name for that is Qinsho-3: numbers 1 and 2 were satellites in the Shiyan Weixing series, the first  of which looked very much like the Shijian-11 series.

Has anyone seen if TJSW 2 has been tagged Qianshao-4 or maybe the second Qianshao-3?

TJS-2 has been tagged Huoyan-1 ("Fire cam" in Chinese),  indicating possibly an early warning mission
TJS-1/Qianshao-3/"Outpost-3" is thought to have an ELINT/SIGINT mission as SJ-11/QS-2

With yesterday's TLE, this satellite is stationary at 107.5E, with 1.0 inclination.

TJS-2 or TJSW-2, what shall be the correct name?

Of course it is possible to read too much into names....
Apologies in advance for any lack of civility - it's unintended

W stands for Wixīng which means "satellite". IMHO it can be omitted.
USSTRATCOM uses TJS-2

FYI I have split the posts dealing with Qianshao discussion into a new thread called "Qianshao military satellites"
