The full name is a descriptive name of a block, material or other object.
As the name of a block or material is used in equations it is typically being an abbreviation of the full name or a symbol. The full name thus serves as an explanation of the name.
If a full name is given to a block, it is used in favour of the name in both the graph, in lists and in the interaction matrix.
