Can we create a vpc in aws with a name from our choice ? Does the ask support name ?

Name is just a tag as far as most AWS resources are concerned. When you create a vpc, you’ll definitely be promoted to name the VPC, which you can also later update in the VPC console.
Yes, as it’s just a tag that doesn’t enforce any sort of uniqueness. The VPC ID will be auto generated for each VPC and will be unique across all vpcs in AWS.
the name of the vpc is just a string. Give it a name you'd like
I'd say yes. Because each VPC will have a unique identifier like "vpc-12345abcde"
Though I don't know why you would name them the same.
My VPC names reflect their function and what environment or account it's in (Dev, Prod, Admin, DR, etc). In some dropdowns, if you have duplicate names or no names you make not select the VPC you really want.
