That may be, but the Catholic Church seems to think the name is accurate enough.  I'm sure someone would request a name change if they didn't embody a Catholic spirit-- we've seen this done before, where someone in the hierarchy sues someone for using the name "Catholic" in their business. 

When and where? I have never known a Church entity to sue over the use of the name 'Catholic'. In fact, in 1968, the Ordinary of Kansas City-St Joseph denounced NCR for heresy and asked that they drop the word Catholic from their masthead. They refused. Only obedient Catholics like Voris obey that sort of request.

Wikipedia Wrote:In 1968, NCR's ordinary, Bishop Charles Herman Helmsing "issue[d] a public reprimand for their policy of crusading against the Church's teachings," condemning its "poisonous character" and "disregard and denial of the most sacred values of our Catholic faith." [11] Helmsing warned that NCR's writers were likely guilty of heresy, had likely incurred latae sententiae excommunications, and because the publication "does not reflect the teaching of the Church, but on the contrary, has openly and deliberately opposed this teaching," he "ask[ed] the editors in all honesty to drop the term 'Catholic' from their masthead," because "[b]y retaining it they deceive their Catholic readers and do a great disservice to ecumenism by being responsible for the false irenicism of watering down Catholic teachings."[12]
NCR refused to comply with its ordinary, and 66 Catholic journalists signed a statement disagreeing with the condemnation based on its "underlying definition of the legitimate boundaries of religious journalism in service to the church."[13] The Catholic Press Association reported that the dispute arose from a difference of opinion regarding the function of the press."

As to the CPA statement in the last sentence, it is instructive that the NCR has received 'excellence awards' from said 'Catholic' Press Association every year since at least 2000!
