In the Hobbit the dwarves are captured by elves in Mirkwood and taken to a stronghold on the northeastern side of Mirkwood along the Forest River referred to as "The Elvenking's Halls".

A map of the Wilderland from Christopher Tolkien

Does this stronghold/settlement have a proper elven name other than "The Elvenking's Halls" (like Caras Galadhon in Lothlorien)? Do the elves of Mirkwood not have proper names for their settlements?

Halls of Thranduil

I do not believe they are given a separate title in most of Tolklien's works or writings. This is kind of odd as one would expect a Sindarian name at the very least; it might be safe to assume that such a title does exist (in universe) however, this title has yet to be extrapolated (to my knowledge).
