grep manpage style issue

The term "file name" occurs about 7 times.  I was trying to figure out
how to suppress file names from output, but couldn't find the switch.
After searching online, I found that it was --no-filename, which is
described as "Suppress the prefixing of **filename**s on output when
multiple files are searched," (emphasis added).  The inconsistent
style between "file name" and "filename" made it harder to find the
switch.  Perhaps you'd consider picking either "file name" or
"filename" and using one consistently at least within a single page?
