Is octa-core a Samsung term?

I've seen it written octA-core and octO-core. Is octa-core a Samsung term (as in Exynos 5 Octa) or is it technically correct too?

Well, Samsung confused the issue when they named a chip eight-core "Exynos 5 'Octa'"... which, if I understand correctly, is really more like a dual quad-core...

Pre-Samsung you would more often hear of "octo-core"... Have Samsung invented or trademarked "octa-core"? I don't know, don't care....
