I can't explain it better than this....
In addition to the excellent explanation offered in Sugarbrie's post,let me mention something else.
Many of us find these numbers hard to keep straight and classical publishers(especially pre-electronic aged) sometimes named compositions for the convenience of their customers who ordered music from them.
Here are just a few:
--Mozart, Jupiter Symphony,Emporor Concerto
--Hayden,Suprise,Drumroll,and Bear Symphonies
--Beethoven,Moonlight Sonata,Pastoral Symphony
I could go on but you get the idea.
That a piece of music had a publisher assigned nickname meant that it was popular among buyers and does not guarantee you will like it, but that many others did,whatever that is worth.
