Who named the different conic?

Conic sections are amongst the most used curves and are the most older math concepts. Systematic work on their properties was investigated thoroughly by Apollonius. Apollonius of Perga is the first person to base the theory of all three conics on sections of one circular cone, right or oblique. He is also the one who has given the names parabola, ellipse and hyperbola.
