If you want to name individual cells then you need to loop thru the cells:

Code:
For Each cell in Range("A1:A10")
  cell.Name = cell.Value
Next
Note that the above does not handle errors (eg caused by invalid names).

If you want name the multiple cell...

1) select then range
2) [Define name] - [Create from selection] - [left column]
