Clearly these names were not in existance at the time of the battle, but it has been my understanding that the "names" were given by the old soldiers afterwards. If I am wrong, I apologize for that and only that error.

As an aside, while ths sunken road is noy nearly so pronounced as at Antietam, I believe it is indeed "sunken"..ie cut below the surrounding terrain.
I can point to many similiar examples in NW Alabama, about 10 miles upstream from Pittsburg landing.
