    Many thousands of kinds. Ones with labels can be looked up on internet searching part or all of label as phrase. Complex hybrids (SLC is an abbreviated generic name indicating it is a multigeneric hybrid, in this case I think probably Sophrolaeliocattleya (spelling approximate)) such as one shown in right photo will not have common names.

    Dragging them to a patient local orchid grower may result in useful tips about managing them under local conditions.

    Orchid #2 appears to be a Dendrobium of some type, beyond that you'd have to get it to flower before even a Dendrobium expert would have a chance at ID. #1 is a bit out of focus...can't see it clearly enough to ID. The name you see for #3 is likely correct as SLC refers to the the multigeneric hybrid name as Ron said earlier.
