Misnomer (n)

I don’t know if I can argue that it’s a word high-schoolers ought to know, but if you think so, then here is a context clues worksheet on the noun misnomer. It means “a use of a wrong or inappropriate name” and “a wrong name or inappropriate designation.”

Misnomer does appear fairly often in educated discourse.
