Best Answer

No. Originally "Field Hockey" was not called that, as at the time of origin there was only one type of hockey with variations, played around the world. Outside of America and Canada field hockey is known by its original and formal name of hockey. It is only after the popular growth of Ice Hockey and roller hockey in North America that the word "field" was added to distinguish it.
