Almond, Peanut, Nut "Butter", "Paste" or "Spread"?

With last week's conversation regarding the labeling of Rice, Almond & Soy "Milk" or "Drink", it inspired me to ask the same question of the label "Butter". 

Here's some food for thought.........

According to Wikipedia's definition of butter:

•Butter is a dairy product made by churning fresh or fermented cream or milk. It is generally used as a spread and a condiment, as well as in cooking applications such as baking, sauce making, and frying. Butter consists of butterfat, water and milk proteins.

So should the label "butter" be used solely on products made by milk and cream?

If so, then should the following be changed?
Peanut Paste?  Almond Paste?  Nut Paste?  Cashew Spread?

And what about body butter?!

I'm curious what your opinion is on this!
