I'm not actually struggling with this room. Goodness no. It's as easy as it gets. No, my question lies more in... how this world works.

Just who in the empire called this place "Upper Lowest" and had nobody say "yeah those don't counter each other whatsoever call it that" and just kinda let this happen? It seems kinda... redundant, not to mention counter-intuitive.

I mean... Is it really lowest if it's the UPPER lowest. Seriously. Someone explain to me.

The next level after this is Lowest Proper, and after that is Lowest Point. Upper Lowest is the upper part of the general Lowest area. Hence, Upper Lowest.

...but how is it called lowest point if it's also UPPER... the two directions kind of counter each other here.

It's Upper relative to the other parts of Lowest.

Yes, it sounds silly, that's part of the point.
