What did the Bolshevik party become know as?

The Bolsheviks were also known as the "reds" during the Russian Civil War in 1918. This group was organized by Trotsky during the Civil War. The color "red" is commonly associated with Communism explaining the name. They fought against the Whites, which were really varied in who exactly they were but united in the goal that they wanted to remove the Reds from power. Some groups of the Reds were the liberal supporters of the provisional government, Mensheviks, Social Revolutionaries, and anarchist peasant bands (another color name the "Greens"). In terms of other names for the Bolsheviks, I think it is important to note that Bolshevik means "members of the majority", which takes its historical context in the era after the February Revolution of 1917, when the leadership of the Russian Social Democrats grew significantly. The Bolshevik party was just a splinter (led by Vladimir Lenin) of the Russian Social Democrats.
