What’s the best name for keyword parameters?

The term “keyword parameters” comes (AFAIK) from Lisp. I have seen Brendan use it and have also used it myself [1]. Can we do better? jQuery talks about “options objects”. Hence keyword parameter = option? But that clashes a bit with optional positional parameters.
