I don't think so. I believe the name hyperbola is given only to one of the conic sections. It's equation can be written in one of these forms:\[\frac{x^2}{a^2}\frac{y^2}{b^2}=1\qquad\text{EastWest Hyprbola}\]\[\frac{y^2}{a^2}\frac{x^2}{b^2}=1\qquad\text{NorthSouth Hyprbola}\]\[xy=m\qquad\text{Rectangular Hyperbola}\]
