HTML HTML Forms Choosing Options Create Checkboxes

Linking "Labels" to which attribute?

Hello, when i use labels, am i linking it to "id" or to the "name"? For example: <label for="test">Test</label> <input type="checkbox" id="test">

or should it be

<label for="anothertest">another Test</label> <input type="checkbox" name="anothertest">

Labels should be linked to the id. If you're unsure in future you can always check by trying both and seeing which one creates the desired result.
