I had a look at the XML used to save the document.

The Name field is kept only for "Text" hyperlinks. It is ignored for "Button" hyperlinks.

I think it is relevant only when you save your document as .html.

The text hyperlink is made an <a> element with attributes from the hyperlink properties: <a href="dest" name="the_name"> where dest is the target bookmark in the document and the_name is taken from the Name field in the dialog.

For a button hyperlink, the name= attribute is a sequential id "Push Button n" where n is automatically incremented. However, the Name data gives a user-name to the button which allows you to locate it in Navigator Draw objects section.
