naming convention in the tree of an assembly changes to part 1 <1>, Part1<2>...etc

Hello, Trying to understand why the naming convention in the tree of an assembly changes to part 1 <1>, Part1<2>...etc. after i've taken the time to name the parts such as, Cylinder body , coupler...
This affects my BOM
1. insert
2. insert named parts
3. renames parts in the tree in assembly to PART 1???.

my background is Solidworks.  so a lot of my issues im finding out is that Onshape seems to be more intuitive or for the most part is rather easy to use.

    Thank you Neil,  I did not realize I am able to model multiple parts in one tab of a part studio.  if I understand correctly.  it don't have to be one tab per detail then?  yes that is what I did do I just named the part description in the tab because that's where I thought the names populated from.  Thank you.

    Correct.
    You can have as many parts in a tab as you like. :)
