Are we forced to use the slug "blogs"?

Hello,

My question is about "blogs directory". On the usage page, you say :

all you need to do is create a page with the slug “blogs” without the quotes.

The word " blog" is not correctly understood by some people for whom blogs are just very poor websites. So it's pejorative for such people. So my question is:
are we forced to use the slug "blogs"?

Could it be possible to use another slug, for example "sites"?

Thanks!
