Neo-paganism means, in essence, new or modern paganism, which is true, considering that the practices followed these days are new or reconstructionist, for the most part. However, they're still forms of paganism. If you get right down to it, unless you're discussing paganism both ancient and moderning in a historical, anthropological or sociological point of view, the "neo" prefix is pretty much useless.
I mean, come on, it's like calling episcipals "neo-catholics" or all other denominations of kristjanity "neo-christianity". Kinda pointless and there's no reason to classify pagans in such a way, just as there aren't neo-toaists, neo-buddhist, neo-christians, neo-jews, etc. It seems that the only time they like to use that "neo" prefix is if the spiritual path can involve magick and isn't mainstream, i.e. neo-pagan, neo-shaman, etc.
In the end though, pagans are pagans and the use of neo just denotes whether you're talking about people from current times or people from a thousand years ago or further back. So, don't let it worry you, it's not a big deal.

Pagan: Country dweller. It's a word often misused to refer to someone who is being spiritual.
Urbanite: City dweller. (I think there's another word that describes this, but I don't remember it.)
Spiritualist: One who believes and practices Spirituality.
Spirituality: The spiritual (not religious) beliefs that form a spiritual path (Wicca, Shamanism, Druidism, Gnostic Christianity, etc.) The word Paganism is often misused for this meaning.
