It also can be labeled as HonkiDonk Force or anything else you want. But properly speaking, it is inertial force due to rotational movement.

"Centrifugal force n. The component of apparent force on a body in curvilinear motion, as observed from that body, that is directed away from the center of curvature or axis of rotation."
American Heritage Dictionary, third edition
This may not be "properly speaking" but it is not incorrect, and it is a long way from HonkiDonk.
