The Name property of a command is a programmatic identifying name string. By convention, a command's name should include its category name. The format of the Name string should be <Category>_<Caption>. For example, the name of the builtin ArcMap command About ArcMap is "Help_About". Since it is an identifier of the command, the Name property should not be localized.

When implementing ICommand to create a custom command, use the Name property to set the internal name of this command.

Note, the Caption property of a command is the string that appears when the command is placed on a command bar.
