Aye, our vocabulary lacks terms that we would find useful. The terms "girlfriend" and "boyfriend" aren't really appropriate for committed adult relationships to begin with, and to use them in conjunction with committed poly couplings doesn't really seem to provide the correct connotations of the nature of the relationships.
Those terms, however, are what we have to work with. I've yet to see any suggestions for alternate terms that I found acceptable.
