        This solution seems to make sense if EC2 is no longer supporting this feature. Hence closing this issue

        The 'name' field is not longer shown in new instance screen in UI, because EC2 doesn't have 'user_name' feature.

        Later we should consider managing tags or using user_data for the instance name.
        Let me know if this solution works for you.
