A logical name for an IP address. Is often equated with the host name, although the relationship of the host name and the IP name is not always unique. (ie A host can have several IP names, but it can only have one host name)

The IP name (also known as IP Address) is the name under which the network adapter is known in the network. An IP name is assigned to each IP address. This simplifies the use of IP addresses.

This IP name is often mistakenly described as the host name.
