Hand-held circular saw

What do you call the flat part of the circular saw? Is it called a rest?

I am talking about the flat rectangular part attached to it with a hole in the middle to let the blade go through the rectangle. I am not sure what it's called.

Doing an image search for "circular saw parts", shows images like the following, so the part appears to be called a base plate. enter image description here

Other images also refer to it as just a "base", or just a "plate".
