What's wrong with angle? Or degrees - if it's the unit used.

For math calculation, variable name may become very long and make the equation messy.

For others, we have h, w, s, x, y, r, and we can create more by simple adjustment.

The only 'standard' angle names I've seen used (which I've tried to follow myself) is theta for 'vertical' and 'phi' for 'horizontal' when creating a 3D sphere, torus, etc.

If that is what the question is asking.
