名称 is appellation in English. Bruce Hoffman wrote
A communist or a revolutionary, for example, would likely readily accept and admit that he is in fact a communist or a revolutionary. Indeed, many would doubtless take particular pride in claiming either of those appellations for themselves.
Those extremists are proud of themselves, and claim responsibility in horrible events, such as Chechen's school siege
, and promote their causes. Could Mr. Bush admit his lie on Iraq's WMD and his cheat on Iraq war? He is definitely a brainless extremist
. He is utilizing his position to promote his conservative agenda over American lives.
