radiator union elbow and valve nipple fitting

i am looking to buy the tool that is used for fitting this kind of very short nipple that has notches inside for torque support. because the nipple is too little to fit a wrench on the outside. i was told on this forum that the tool is called "nipple extractor" but that seems to be the kind of tool needed when you don't have these notches and when there is a situation where you can't grip the pipe from outside. can somebody tell me the name of the tool cause i have everything else ready to put my radiators in and the house is very cold?

see picture

I believe that the correct terms are either;

Radiator key wrench

or radiator spud wrench.

Just depends on who you you're talking to.
