Jeff, all these names are euphemisms, the true names are kept hidden, as are the deeper understandings.
Bjorn touched on this in his original post.
Frankly, I can see no problem in the use of English to refer to any of the keris features:- the English word is irrelevant, just as the Javanese or Malay word is irrelevant.
In the absence of true understanding all the words mean nothing.
