Which of the following names is technically incorrect?

Crab Nebula
Great Andromeda Nebula
Orion Nebula
Horsehead Nebula
The An­drome­da Galaxy is often referred to as the Great An­drome­da Nebula in older texts. Before their nature was un­der­stood, galaxies were clas­si­fied as nebulae, but no longer are. In 1864, William Huggins examined the spectra of about 70 nebulae. He found that roughly a third of them had the ab­sorp­tion spectra of a gas (so these were true neb­u­lae). The rest, in­clud­ing An­dromeda, showed a con­tin­u­ous spectrum and thus were thought to consist of a mass of stars.
