Those lambda forms do not have names because the user did not give it
to them. They are anonymous functions, of the form #'(lambda (..) ...)
and that is why the debugger does not print names. Or is it not the
case? Similarly the interpreter forms, BYTECODES, which are plain lisp
statements, also do not have names.
