Why did the Bolsheviks rename their party the Communist party?

They didn't, the Russian communist party had had a major disagreement over the issue of if the Bousquise (i.e. capitalist) revolution had to happen before the Socialist revolution or not in Russia as it had in England. This resulted in a split into the Bolsheviks (majority party, who said the Bousquise revolution could be skipped) and Mensheviks (minority party, who said the Bousquise revolution was necessary as Marx had said). Both parties were still communists. The very odd thing is that on that specific issue the Bolsheviks were actually in the minority and the Mensheviks were actually in the majority of the voting, it was on other issues of lesser significance that the Bolsheviks came out in the majority of the voting at the meeting of the Russian communist party where the split happened.
