Most of the synopsis areas for DROP commands use "name" as the
identifier, while some areas do not.

The attached converts be below to "name":
conversion_name
index_name


The below have an existing, initdb supplied, entity named "name".  As
such, it could be confusing for the reader to see that identifier used
in the example.

domainname
typename

Perhaps we should be going the otherway and converting the other uses of
"name" into "group_name", "user_name", "function_name", etc.
