Nope you aren't the only one. I've found, in my limited experience, that the more sparring and fighting a school does the more variations in naming that occurs. Also, the you get more stink eye from the teacher when you ask.
I had one teacher basically say "Go do wushu (modern) if you are that worried about the posture names."

I think I know the English names for 3 techniques. I have never been taught the names of anything in any Chinese dialect. It's been 6 years.!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!

I forget the Filipino name, but in escrima the 4th strike was described by my teacher as "like when you feed the chickens".
