There is only one class name; you're being confused by a fossil in X11.
 (There are lots of these fossils; it's one of the big reasons everyone
wants Wayland so badly.  Large chunks of X11 still date from the 1980s, and
new functionality has been duct-taped wherever it could be forced to fit.)

WM_NAME:  window title
WM_CLASS:  first value is appName, second is className
