Default Partial Mashes worth naming?

I'm curious about whether I should bother naming my partial mashes or just the AG. I've done a few AG, but I find myself going PM more and more often just out of simplicity given various time/company constraints. I just don't know if PMs are name worthy. Thoughts?

Of Course they are! If it's your beer/recipe, and you did all the work to create it, then you desereve the right to decide what it's called.

Certainly! It's the specialty grains, hopping and yeasts that matter most. Those would be the same AG or PM.

Any beer you make and enjoy drinking is nameworthy.

I definitely see the value in naming, sometimes I even get more caught up in the names than the actual recipe, but a part of me felt like I might be cheating a little by having extract in there. Extract for me is like the perfect balancing force for my often weak efficiency with the grains.

My 3CPA is extract with 8 oz. of C40L. It's named for the five hops.
