But I guess the obvious question is why didnt they just name them directly after the speed of the RAM like PC 444 etc??

But they did! The 3200 in PC3200 is the bandwidth, i.e. PC3200 has a bandwidth of 3200MBps.

You'll find, with a bit of searching around, that they're also labeled as DDR 400, etc - and that it relates to the PC rating (I'm working off the top of my head here, but I believe that DDR 400 is the same as PC 3200)
