When you make a potion/enchantment it gives you several fields to fill in information (ingredients for potions/soul gem slot and item to enchant for enchantment) and it gives you the ability to enter a name for the item.
What I think would be nice and convenient would be to save a name that the player enters in the naming slot so that you don't have to type in the name EVERY SINGLE TIME!
I was just playing on the Xbox MW (its even worse for naming on that, but then again a lot of MW things are...), and I tried making an amulet of recall with my enchant ability. I failed twice, no prob but I always name my items cuz otherwise they have the same name and it gets frustrating trying to enter the name then fail then enter the name, then fail, then enter the name...
I mean, if you are not making the same kind of item, then you would have to rename it anyway, right? Even if it doesn't save the info to the save game (so it appears next time you load) it would be useful while you are playing... right?
