Why does Senator Sanders and Representative-elect A.O.C. refer to themselves as Democratic Socialists instead of Social Democrats?

After reading up on the definitions don't they have the terms backwards

"Democratic Socialism : a political philosophy that advocates political democracy alongside social ownership of the means of production with an emphasis on self-management and democratic management of economic institutions within a market or some form of decentralized planned socialist economy."

"Social Democracy: a political, social and economic ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a liberal democratic polity and capitalist economy."

Are the sources on these terms messed up or is this just one of those things that we as Americans decided to say differently?
