Short description of error
In the "Object Context Menu", it's titled "Smooth Shading / Flat Shading" but in the "Object Menu" at the top of the viewport, the same options are titled "Shade Smooth / Shade Flat". They should be titled the same as it's the same operation.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).

Event Timeline

Yes, of course - we should give them consistent names. I don't mind which one to be honest

I think it should be Shade Smooth and Shade Flat, because these are actually operators and not properties of a mesh as a whole.

Agree, and operator names generally contain a verb.

Agreed - in fact I was just going to write this.
