Using the memoir class and the cleveref package as in the MWE included below, I would like to have as name of a sectional division marked with \section after the \appendix declaration, the same name as before: "section". Nonetheless, what I get is "appendix". Any hints as to how to obtain the desired behavior will be welcome.



\chapter{First Chap.}\label{firstch}
This is some intro with a reference to \cref{firstch}.
\section{First Chap. Section}\label{firstchapsec}
And now a reference to \cref{firstchapsec}. This is fine; I want the name "section".
\chapter{First App.}\label{firstapp}
This is the app. with a reference to \cref{firstapp}.
\section{First App. Section}\label{firstappsec}
And now a reference to \cref{firstappsec}. I want to have "section" instead of "appendix".

    As this also happens with the standard book class, this is not memoir related. – daleif Nov 16 '17 at 13:55

    Good to know. Just in case that someone comes up with a memoir-specific answer, I'll leave the tags and the title as they are. If the answer is memoir-independent I'll delete the memoir tag and rephrase the title. – Marcos Nov 16 '17 at 13:59
