That's the official name of the organization. "Mormons" is a nickname. Most Mormons call themselves LDS.

(Who are the Latter Day Saints and why are they different from the... er, Former Day Saints?)
The Latter Day Saints are the followers of Joseph Smith and their descendants/successors; Former Day Saints would be the saints of the Bible, the apostles, etc.
