Indeed.  And Emacs takes the names from the Unicode character database
anyway, so we cannot misspell the names.

Note that some LAMDA letters have the "old name" property that uses
LAMBDA, but this specific character doesn't (probably because it was
added after the above-mentioned preference was adopted by the Unicode
consortium).
