    Is it not grammatical if I use expression like"called as"?

    I should choose one between 1 and 2 which can be placed in the blank and suit for sentence below.
    "The tree producing the dye was ___________and gave its name to the country."
    1.called as brazilwood/ 2.called brazilwood
    Of two options, I choosed 1(called as brazilwood) because I saw some sentences including "called as".
    In contrary to my previous thought, the answer is 2, and there are some words in the explanation "call A B", "A be called B".
    Can't I both use 1.called as brazilwood/ 2.called brazilwood?

    And you "chose." "Choosed" is not the past tense of "choose."
