Sommerset was a transitional name as the previous X-Body Skylark was still kinda on sale at the same time.

This car was supposed to be the Buick Regal, but with the RWD G-bodies still selling well, and the N-bodies were deemed too small by traditionalists, the G-body Regal lived on, and this car was introduced as the Somerset Regal for model year 1985.  It went through a number of name changes, to just Somerset the next year, and then to Skylark.  When the 4-door version was introduced for model year 1986, it was called Skylark from the onset.
