Similar Names of Interactions between Ions and Molecules

Just to clarify, dispersion, induced dipole-induced dipole, london, and van der walls are all the same? Their names are just interchangeable?

Yep, induced dipole-induced dipole is probably the most descriptive name for the intermolecular interaction but you can also use dispersion, VDW's, and London forces interchangeably.
