Can you elaborate on your question, do mean network interface cards names? or what interface are you referring to?

To answer your question literally, different interfaces have different names because they are different interfaces and it doesn't make sense to call them all by the same name. What problem are you trying to solve?

Udev initially sets devices names but you can customize them further by creating *.link unit files as shown here under 'Configuring low-level network device settings'
