[seqfan] vampire numbers

Hello SeqFans,

I just wrote an essay about problems with names for vampire numbers:

I suggest renaming the corresponding sequences. For example we might
want to name:
A080718 Numbers n such that all the digits of the prime factors of n
exactly match the digits of n. 
--- prime-fanged vampire numbers.

A014575 Vampire numbers (numbers having more than one pair of fangs are
listed once for each pair). 
--- double symmetrical fangs vampire numbers.

A020342 Vampire numbers: n has a factorization using n's digits (e.g.
1395 = 31*9*5). 
--- we might keep the name or call them generalized vampire numbers.

I didn't check if all the sequences I mention in my essay are in the
OEIS. I would like to clean the naming conventions first, then someone
can add more sequences if desired.

Best, Tanya
