It doesn't matter now but it did formerly.
Originally Arc Fault breakers were only required in bedrooms. So it would have been very important to know if a room was a bedroom versus a den, office, or parlor.
Now I think code requires AFCI in all those locations.
That was simply driven by what was written on the plan. If it was
called a bedroom it needed AFCI. This was pretty much enforced by the
tax collector. If the house was built with "3 bedrooms", that was what
showed on the tax records and the tax record is what the real estate
agent will use on the listing. (Zillow etc)

Some ladies' rooms have a separate anteroom with couches and
upholstered chairs, and I've always assumed the word restroom started
with them. Like at Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. And maybe the
Senator Theatre in Baltimore, which if I'm right would have had one
for the men too. Auditorium Theatre is the only place where I saw
the ladies room. The explanation is complicated.
