Why did God name both male and female "Adam" when he created them?

How is it God made Adam and Eve yet called their name Adam? How did Eve come about her name, when God named their names Adam?

Genesis 5:2

ESV - 2 Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.

Adam means "Man" in a generic sense, such as 'mankind' or 'people'.
