Should I call my piece a piano sonata or a sonatina?

So, I am writing another sonata form movement as the first movement of another piece. And the piece is in the key of C minor. The thing is though, that especially in the key of C minor, I tend to err on the side of more development. So, should I call it a sonatina as I am currently and try to make it more concise? Or should I call it a piano sonata and write it to be as long as I please?

My Pieces

Hey guys! I'm new to this group and I figured I might as well put my music out there now! I am a percussionist and am most prominent in writing for mallet percussion, but I also love to write for band, choir, and musical theater! Feel free to check them all out and give me feedback.

Choral Piece for SATB+Piano

Hey guys, I'm a new member of this group! I wrote this piece (called "Speak to Me") for the 2019 NAfME Composition Competition. Unfortunately, it did not make it in, but my high school choir was able to perform it for our winter collage concert this past December! I'd appreciate it if you guys would check it out and give me feedback! (It's my least viewed score with only 5 views, lol). P.S. you might be able to tell that I was listening to a lot of Eric Whitacre at the time that I wrote this XD P.P.S. If you would like to know the backstory/inspiration behind this piece, feel free to let me know!
