    He does know the 1st tail beast name.
    We've known it from the very start, it's Shukaku.

    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    The names were just symbolism that they all accept him as "The One". The chakra was just enough so that he could continue fighting Obito right now. Unless it turns out the names are some code to deactivate Gedo Mazo or something. Which is unlikely considering now's the perfect time to use it and he's just... not.

    Well, the biju might be made of chakra but each of them has their own personality and feelings. It makes perfect sense they would indeed have names other than being called by the number of their tails. It makes even more sense when some of them are somehow based on actual mythological creatures who do have names. The strange part is that no one every wondered whether they did have names.

    Ok , but naruto said "i know there names...i bet you dont!" to tobito, so it makes me think that he needs the names to "call out" to the personality within the 10 tails....maybe garra will show up and thats how the 1 tail will be convinced

    Yeah. Maybe their names are some sort of sealing spell . Maybe the reason why obito and madara failed to summon the juubi is because they don't know the final method of that summoning. Maybe you need to say their names first before the juubi will appear.
    When i claimed that minato knows Kage Bunshin, They said that I'm wrong.
    When i claimed that minato is a sage mode user, they said that I'm delusional.
    When i claimed that minato can extend his chakra arms and can activate BM, they said that I'm ridiculous.
    Seriously, Who's "wrong", "delusional" and "ridiculous" now?

    Lol typical Naruto twist...all you needed to do was treat those beasts like they were kids and they'll listen to ya

    its bad enough kyuubi has been reduced to a Naruto fanboy....i hope that isn't the significance of the names.

    That was purely symbolic. Tobi at the time could have never thought of the biju as anything other but incontrollable masses of chakra. They were as far as he was concerned things. To boot his entire plan revolves around taking away the worlds sense of self, no more individuals, just madara in control.

    The personalities of the biju were there before naruto new their names. Even the 3 tails turned out to be a good guy with a personality.

    i agree dose Naruto not realize that the Nine tails has killed many leaf ninja (including his mom and dad, and Irukas parents.....it was also because of the nine tails attack that the Uchiha were put under suspicion if not for that then the massacre would not have happened) i dont know why Naruto just forgot all that :/

    Naruto didn't just forget all of that. That's the biggest aspect of Naruto's character at this point in the series, especially since after Jiraiya died. You know, all that stuff about breaking the cycle of hatred and whatnot.

    Let's suppose Naruto did decide to finish off Nagato and hold a major grudge against Kurama. Then what?

    The whole point of the tailed beast names are to be recoginzed as living beings and not being used as animals just see how you feel when you call someone by a ugly name like black people when they get called with the N word!
    Tobi: no power surpasses my eternal mangeyko sharingan!
    Itachi: Kabuto, to think that you surpassed orochimaru is amazing on it’s own, yet i believe you still have much to learn, especially about who you are deal(?) “dealing?” with

    Failll ^^

    I suppose the whole point is the symbolism of Naruto trying to understand, while Tobi wants to control.

    Re: whats The point of the tailed beasts names

    I think it's funny that Kurama who is basically Naruto's surrogate/adoptive/unwilling father was supposed to still hate him after 16 years. I think he was just mad Naruto never asked him if he had a name. Then he was probably sore about the time Naruto stepped on him and got all up in his grill as well.

    Anywho I think the names have no other importance than to humanize the bijuu's. Naruto's probably messing with Obito's head like he messed with the entire world. (Fooling them into thinking he was Madara)
