why bicuspid valve is called is called mitral valve????

The left auricle opens below into the left ventricle by AV aperture which is guarded by one way valve known as the bicuspid valve.

Mitral means mitre (two pieces match together). 

Since the bicuspid valve consists of two flaps, it is also named as mitral valve.

The mitral valve (also known as the bicuspid valve or left atrioventricular valve) is a dual-flap (bi- from the Latin, meaning double, and mitral- from the Latin, meaning shaped like a miter valve in the heart that lies between the left atrium (LA) and the left ventricle (LV). The mitral valve and the tricuspid valve are known collectively as the atrioventricular valves because they lie between the atria and the ventricles of the heart and control the flow of blood.
