Why do all Macs have as the default partition name 'Macintosh HD'?
Because a volume has to have a name. What else would it be called?
What does 'Macintosh HD' mean?
Macintosh is the full name of the "Mac" part of Mac OS X. It is the name of the first Mac line ever made. HD is short for hard drive.
@OP The name can be anything you like at any time as many times as you like without causing any problems.
You can even name it with a single space so in effect it has no name for that ultra minimalist look, as I have done on my gf's computer.
