NOVA uses the names listed in the Space-Track catalog.
SO-50 goes by the name SAUDISAT 1C (NORAD Catalog #27607).
AO-51 goes by the name AMSAT ECHO (NORAD Catalog #28375).
VO-52 goes by the name HAMSAT (NORAD Catalog #28650).
The AMSAT website lists the "Common Name" for each satellite on their
status page along with the NORAD Catalog number. That will let you find
your desired satellites.
