"P. O. S." comes to mind when I think of this Google Pixel 4a I have. The most annoying, intrusive device I've ever owned....and that's with Google Assistant and all notifications shut off. You can't pick it up without it asking or showing something I could care less about.
A fantastic camera with a cumbersome phone and computer attached is what I have.

My wife and I had a go round about this just this morning. She wanted me to download an app. I said I don’t download apps. What? “I’ll do it”, she said. “What’s your Apple ID?” IDK. What?
A phone name or Apple ID is just another way you give them to burrow into your brain. Unfortunately the app she wanted me to download had something to do with a way to carry proof of vaccination. That’s a good idea but I resent Apple wedging it’s way further into my life, especially when my status has nothing to do with Apple.
That happened to me when registering a different device. Aggravating.
I'd name the phone "call me".
You need an Apple account to download items from their app store. The AppleID is just the name associated with the account (so you can log in), nothing nefarious there.
Anyhow, the original question isn't anything nefarious either from the sounds of it, the opposite in fact; an OP-chosen name assigned to a device that he trusts.
Not the same thing, but an iphone generally has you list the owner of the phone somewhere. My phone literally calls my wife "supreme ruler of the universe", because that's what she named herself.
Chitlin, Ace, or Tiger are examples.
ref.^ Name it Bunsen.
Verizon has a "Nickname" field for your credit card used for payment. Most difficult site to try and pay your stoopid phone bill.

Oh yeah, that's probably it.
It's okay, smartphones aren't for everyone.
