Tables created by named code block are already prefixed with a
#+results: source-name line.  This allows them to be referenced by other
code blocks.  Is there some property of #+tblname: lines which is not
shared by #+results: lines which would make #+tblname: lines preferable?

(rather into the name).  Can I ask what use-case this would be to

I'm not sure what you mean here.  By "dynamic block" do you mean "code
