it seems through the tutorials and trial and error that you can set the name of send~, receive~ and receive objects, but you cant do that with the send object….?

yes, true.

there are workarounds. for example, you can do a general [send void], [prepend] an ID to the sent [message] and then use [route] elsewhere to route the messages by ID to the appropriate place… among other things…

Use forward instead of send.

have a look at the forward object. forward = send with dynamic destination

edit: looks like Chris beat me to it :)
