In Guest.js why are we removing the index parameter?

Inside Guest.js why do we write
handleNameEdits={e => props.setName(e.target.value)}

when we can just pass the handler down another level with setName={props.setName} the // line is meant to be commented below

  // handleNameEdits={e => props.setName(e.target.value)} 
  setName={props.setName} > 

then inside GuestName.js we write

onChange={e => props.setName(e.target.value)}

I don't have a strong understanding I kind of click buttons until it works S: would like to know why other way is better.
