What is the naming convention of transposed instruments?

|PR #5320||#294495: Transposed piccolo/clarinet/trumpet has "<key> <instrument>", not "<instrument> in <key>"|
This came to me when I proposed a change in #294495. Mr. Sabatella pointed out (in here) that "xx instrument" and "instrument in xx" (where xx is the key) are both widely used. I went to check the templates in MuseScore and found out indeed: in most of the cases, in band templates they're named as "xx instrument", while in orchestral templates "instrument in xx".
So if you have any knowledge of this, could you please tell me: is this really traditional that in bands they're "xx instrument" and in orchestras they're "instrument in xx"? Which of them is used more often in all conditions?
