North Magnetic Pole or magnetic North Pole?

Hi,

I found a map using the expression "North Magnetic Pole". The way I see it, the word "magnetic" should come first, as modifier, specifying that it's the magnetic North Pole, not the geographic one. Even if not, the expression should be "Northern Magnetic Pole"; I feel that the word "northern" is more of a modifier.

Could you please tell me if I'm wrong about these or not?
