What is the meaning of the different nicknames of the Hussites: Taborites, Chashniks, Utrakvists, Kalishan, Lodges, Orphans?

Taborites – the name comes from Mount Tabor, where they built their fortress and named it after the biblical Mount Tabor. Similarities, or utraquists, are those who demanded communion under both kinds (bread and wine) for all laity, and not just for priests, as in the Catholic Church. Chashniki and Kalishan (from the Latin calix – chalice) – from communion with wine, and not just bread. Orphans – this is how the soldiers of Zizka called themselves after the death of the leader.
