I have seen these written in different ways in the disc description sections and wonder if there is a consensus opinion as to what people prefer and would like to be the semi-official wording.

I like the first one (4K Ultra HD) because most of these releases have the words "4K Ultra HD – Blu-ray" or "4K Ultra HD – Blu-ray – DVD" at the top of the box so that would fit with the findings in the poll about the Blu-ray format.

"4K Ultra HD", "Ultra HD" or "UHD" just describe the resolution (3840×2160). If we use those we would have to change all "Blu-ray"s to "HD" or "Full HD" or "FHD" and "DVD"s to "SD".

The medium itself is an Ultra HD Blu-ray: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_HD_Blu-ray
Like the Blu-ray (Disc) or the DVD.

If we want to do it similar to the mentioned poll, it has to be "4K Ultra HD Blu-ray", "Ultra HD Blu-ray" or "UHD Blu-ray".

UHD or Ultra HD by themselves doesn't mean a thing without 4K in front of it. Once 8K hits the market harder it won't let you know which is which.

8K Blu-ray will just be Extremely HD (EHD) Blu-ray.

Keeping in mind, that physical disc will disapear, 4K UHD without the Blu-Ray is still not an identifier...
