Action name: MakeNameThis command gives name/renames/deletes name for the current item.
To delete a name, simply give an empty name.
If the current item is referenced, you cannot delete its name. Even if you try, IDA will generate a dummy name.
The name is considered to be defined only in the current function. Please note that IDA does not check the uniqueness of the local names in the whole program. However, it does verify that the name is unique for the function.Include in names list
Here you can also include/remove the name from the name list. If the name is hidden, you will not see it in names window.Public name

An autogenerated name will appear in a different color. if the item is indefined, it will disappear automatically .Weak name
You can declare a name as a weak name. If the current assembler supports the "weak" directive, IDA will use it. Otherwise, the weakness of the name will be displayed as a comment.Create name anyway
