Methinks the OP's question is more rhetorical than literal. i.e. "Why not call it a Bauhaus?".

This assumes the OP is referring Bauhaus as in the "Form Follows Function" school of design thought rather than the late 70's British Goth band below:

Because it's Virtual. You go up there, and there really is not a berth. Just a bunch of wet sails, anchors, chain...

Because a W berth wouldn't fit in the bow house!

 

 

Reminds me of the one time my Dad went sailing with me. As we're motoring out of the harbor he asked me where I kept the PFDs? I told him up in the forepeak, aft bulkhead, port side.

I repeated it twice when he kept looking at me sideways like I was pulling his leg.

Finally I said back wall of the front bedroom on the left.

He went up and looked just to make sure I wasn't bullshitting him.

Sometimes, when my wife's up in the V berth, I like to eat at the Y.

The real reason is if it were called the foreberth, we'd also be stuck with ... the afterberth.

So let's keep it classy shall we?
