I don't see any reason why the y should be negative in the orbital expression. I'm believe that it is just a dash connecting x^2 and y^2 to indicate them being a term together. dxy orbital locates in-between axis and dx^2-y^2 orbital locates along the x and y axis.

My mistake! I do find in other videos that people call it "x square minus y square" orbital, I think you are right about it has something to do with the hyperbolic function.
