Name of this leap?

Does anyone know the correct name of the leap where it's essentially a grand jete with a 180 degree turn? So you start as though you're going to do a regular grand jete but in the air you turn 180 degrees so the full grand jete is facing the other way (facing the position where you started from)?

I was taught (and thus continue to call it) a Reverse Leap, obviously named because you reverse the direction of your body even though you don't change the momentum.

As the this was a triple post, and the one I commented on was locked, I want to add my voice to this discussion too!

I said in the other one:
We just always called it a backwards jete, or a back jete. I do not think I have ever heard a more correct name for it, although I am sure there is many variations of the name!



And adding on... I have never heard it called a reverse jete/leap, but I like it! I think it describes it a bit better than a back jete.
