rename frame from frameset

My index.html page creates a top frame called "header" and bottom frame called "body" and a link in the bottom frame loads into "body".  However, javascript in the page renames the frame to "update" using self.name = "update".  Since all the links in the "header" frame target "body", clicking the links will open a new window since there are no longer any frames named body.  

Is there any way to use javascript in the "header" frame to rename the bottom frame back to "body"? (not all the pages rename the frame to "update")

top.frames[1].name = 'body';

Body is not a good name by the way... Used in IE
