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 $\angle{CAB}$
