Does the Presidential term occurring after a death in office have a name (USA specifically)?

I'm working on a project involving US Presidents and their term dates etc. If a President dies in office, how is the new President's term until the next election year referred to? Is it simply 'The first term'? For example, LBJ's presidency between the death of JFK in 1963 and his inauguration in Jan 1965. Was the latter date the commencement of his first term or his second term?
