Perhaps the name you are trying to use is invalid in some way. Perhaps the name is a duplicate.
Perhaps you are misunderstanding and looking at the wrong thing when you examine the properties.

I normally set the name from within the Object Navigator, not the properties dialog of the block, perhaps that makes a difference. If you double click on the name (in the Object Navigator) then it allows you to edit the name. The entire name starts selected and typing anything effectively deletes the whole name - so you may wish to click carefully in the selected name text to unselect the text and instead position the cursor in the name without accidently deleting it all.
