I think common usage is to give shortcuts rather a complete name. That's 
also better if people move them around, placing a copy on the desktop etc.
And since bash shell runs in both command windows (is that a common 
name?), I think the previous proposal "Cygwin Console" and "Cygwin 
Terminal" is the best to distinguish them.
