It was originally called "shinny on ice," because it was similar to a British game that was a cross between lacrosse and rugby. The original name for hockey was "ice hurley". Then gradually turned into ice hockey.

It depends on the type of hockey. For field hockey, it is the International Hockey Federation (FIH). For ice hockey, it is the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF)
