My guess is that he attempted to convey that to John and/or Tripp and they butchered it into NOODLE, and when he caught wind of that, he asked them to just go back to butchering it as KNOWDULL.
I have two theories on that.

1. Exactly as you said above.

2. Someone, not necessarily Nodl himself told Tripp it was Noodle and he then conveyed it to Forslund. I think this might be the case since every time Tripp tries to pronounce something or flex his Russian dialogue Forslund always says we'll have to check on that.
