This request is still something that we still have on our backlog for a potential future update, but we are not able to provide a timeline for it at this point.Justin King commented
The name should be just a simple tag.
That's how AWs does it.
That's how GCP does it
That's how VMware does it
That's how Hyper-V does it ..
Azure tried to get too clever and guess the intent of the name field. You guys guessed wrong. Use a UUID under the hood and revert this to a tag. Or at least let us add a 'name' tag that visually replaces the name in the console at least.

The idea that a drive would be randomly assigned outside of our control is horrible!
I get compatibility, but the programmatic loss is appalling.
