The old Aironet 1130/1200's AP's needed numbers I remember but I am 
pretty sure that an IOS update fixed that.

However, now with our infernal WLC4400 and the C3750's we have I am 
using names and have been for three years.  My counterpart in some 
multinational is on their 29[56]0's and I am pretty sure three/four 
years ago when started playing with 802.1X the 2950 I was playing with 
did permit the use of names.
