The name attribute specifies either the name of a color profile or a font face.

Two elements are using this attribute: <color-profile> and <font-face-name>

color-profile

For <color-profile>, name defines the name of the color profile.

Value <name>
Default value None
Animatable Yes
<name>

This value is the name which is used as the first parameter for ICC color specifications within fill, stroke, stop-color, flood-color and lighting-color property values to identify the color profile to use for the ICC color specification and the name which can be the value of the color-profile property.

Note: If no name is provided, it will be impossible to reference the given color profile description. The name "sRGB" is predefined; any color profile descriptions with <name> set to "sRGB" (case-insensitively) will be ignored.

font-face-name

For <font-face-name>, name defines the name of the font face.

Value <name>
Default value None
Animatable Yes
<name>
This value specifies the name of a local font. Unlike the syntax allowed between the parentheses of the local(…) clause in an @font-face rule src descriptor, the font name specified in this attribute is not surrounded in single or double quotes.
