Is it reasonable to use the terms Greatest Common Factor and Greatest Common Divisor interchangeably ?

    $\begingroup$ Sure. Factor and divisor are synonyms. $\endgroup$ – user137731 Oct 26 '16 at 16:08

Yes. These are exactly the same thing.

You could also use Highest Common Factor or Highest Common Divisor. HCF in particular is taught in various parts of the world (as well as GCD and GCF. I'm not sure about HCD).
