we call s p d f orbitals by s p d f but not with names because it will be difficult to remember their names and also specific name at the time of finding is given to them.so they are called as s p d f orbitals

Atomic orbitals are typically described as “hydrogen-like” (meaning one-electron) wave functions over space, categorized by nl, and m quantum numbers, which correspond to the electrons' energy, angular momentum, and an angular momentum direction, respectively. Each orbital is defined by a different set of quantum numbers and contains a maximum of two electrons. The simple names s orbitalp orbitald orbital and f orbital refer to orbitals with angular momentum quantum number l = 0, 1, 2 and 3 respectively. These names indicate the orbital shape and are used to describe the electron configurations. They are derived from the characteristics of their spectroscopic lines: sharp, principal, diffuse, and fundamental, the rest being named in alphabetical order
