The main point of Reichskristallnacht is not the "Reich" but the "kristall", which means crystal. The narrative was that all that broken glass looks really great. It looks like beautiful crystals.

The term that the German Wikipedia uses today is Novemberpogrome.

If this is the main reason, shouldn't we see the same practice in other allied nations, such as France?
The French lived under German occupation which likely tried to do propaganda to the French people.

Apart from that I don't know French to go into detail of how the French name things.
