Suppose I'm building a website and I want to have a page to help the user know about the website: the apt title would be Help, but I've named it About. (Normally About pages tell us about the author / company /reason for the existence of that website, but I've used the term Contact here.)

What is the term for this? (I once came across the word, googled, and found the meaning. But I have now forgotten the word.)

'Anything that can be misunderstood will be misunderstood.'

But you may be thinking of misnomer, one of whose senses applies.
