I also remember <SEND> and <COMMIT> keys. (Early VAX keyboards come to mind, but I'm not sure.) They obviously refer to the act of writing to a database as opposed to the beginning of a new line of text. I like both because they convey the true import of what the user does. They also connote finality and help users avoid the pitfall of thinking that anything
they've typed is "in there" just because it has appeared on the screen.
