Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
So are you supposed to "name" a repository?
When I am in GitHub in Google Chrome, it asks to name the repository. Are you supposed to do that somehow via the command line?

I think you can only name the remote repositories via github. Since this will be the remote repository you will be pulling and pushing from.
You will be able to obtain the link to that remote repo so you can start cloning, pulling, and pushing to it from your locally.
You can however name local repos. Git uses the name of the directory folder where you use the command git init to create a new repo.
You can name the remote repos locally when adding a link to the remote repo so that your local repo recognizes which one to pull/push to.
Although it is probably best to keep those names the actual name of the remote repo on GitHub instead to save confusion.
My answer is only to my knowledge after finishing Git terminal introduction and currently on the Git Branches course. Therefore someone may know more clearer than me, but nevertheless hope this helps and I believe it may all be correct!
