Star Wars question (no spoilers): if, in the new trilogy, the galaxy is divided between the New Republic and the First Order, why is?

Why is the Rebellion still called the Rebellion when they're basically the military of the New Republic? Does anybody know? The Empire got rebranded as the First Order, do rebels continue to be rebels when they've become the norm?
