Use the same language everywhere "align left and right" to be renamed to "fill container"

Can you guys get rid of the Align “Left and Right” and replace it with “fill container”?

Why using two different languages for auto-fill and non auto-fill components. It is super confusing even though that I am an experienced / advanced user.
Keep the fill container and ditch the align left and right. Review all else and make sure you use the same language all across Figma. After all you are the UX software… ta da.

In my view these are different because left/right are “constrain left side relative to right side and right side relative to left side” and fill container is “fill all the available space in the container”. The first one doesn’t resize the object unless you resize the parent frame, the latter does resize it to fill all the available space.
