It's like "Irish Guinness" (but, this is another topic ;-))

I don't understand what you're trying to say here. Apache httpd is not
the same as httpd.

Apache httpd is a synonym for the Apache HTTP Server, presumably. (It
might not be, in certain circumstances, but let's make the argument

httpd is a command, that invokes the Apache HTTP Server. It's *NOT* a
synonym for the project, it's not a synonym for Apache httpd, it's
something you type at a command line.

I have no idea how Guinness is relevant.
