What is actual name of Lightroom?

I mean, there was lot of confusion between Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic from very beginning, but focusing only on cloud based Lightroom CC, what is its name nowadays really?

At the beginning, it was Lightroom CC
Here on forum it's Lightroom Desktop
In Windows programs it's Adobe Lightroom
...not confused yet?...
In Lightroom splashscreen, it's Photoshop Lightroom
In Lightroom "About" menu, it's Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
On the product webpage, it's just Lightroom

Now say once again we are messing Lightroom CC and Ligtroom Classic together :D

Don't bother. In a few months it's probably different again.  ;)

Officially - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

For short, Adobe Lightroom or Lightroom (or very unofficially, LR Cloudy).

Desktop, Mobile, iOS, Android, Web etc. designations are used on the forums and blog posts to differentiate the platform they're used on.
