Ah, sorry, did not try that. Your above mentioned suggestion works. As I
needed the name to be set for my window-manager, I ended up with the following 
(but it
also works without (name . "foo")):

(defun qw ()
  (select-frame (make-frame '((name . "foo") 
                              (width . 120)
                              (height . 25))))

This is perfect, it does the same thing as:

(defun qw ()
  (make-frame '( (name . "foo")
                (width . 120)
                (height . 25)))
  (sleep-for 0.00134)
  (select-frame-by-name "foo") 

But without the time-delay, so for my use it works, and is shorter to
boot, excellent!

Select-frame-by-name is a bit slow, when called right after make-frame, which 
might be
a bug or not.

Thanks for all the replies,
