How do I name this angle ?

Hi, I keep having to name these sorts of angles, but I don't know how to. Could anyone help me, please ?

A is a point on g, a line. B is another point that is not on g. How do I name each of the angles caused by the intersection of AB and g (see attachment) ?

Thanks for your help !

place another point on line g, call it point $\color{red}C$

the marked angle is $\angle{BAC}$ or $\angle{CAB}$

But I once saw it done another way. See page 2 of http://imosuisse.ch/smo/skripte/geom...geometrie1.pdf
I just don't understand their logic. But thanks, anyway.

The diagram above shows another angle corresponding to another position for C. With either position, one could mark the appropriate reflex angle as well.
