Mormon’s two self introductions question


Quick question:

Why in 3 Nephi chapter 5 does Mormon introduce himself as a descendant of Lehi and tells us he is named after the Waters of Mormon,  but in the Book of Mormon chapter 1, he introduces himself as a descendant of Nephi, and implies he was named after his father?
