In English we sometimes use the expression "As its/their name indicates" to express the fact that the name of a concept/object/etc. bears part of its meaning, e.g.:
As their name indicates, supernovae are discovered in the sky as “new stars” (-novae) of exceptionally high brightness (super-).
How would you say in a similar fashion that the name is a misnomer?
We are going to use logistic regression, which as its name does not indicate is a classification model.
I would like to replace "which as its name does not indicate" by some expression that underlines the fact that the name is a misnomer, not just uninformative.
