I don't think they ever learn their names. I can call my guy anything and he will talk back to me. He doesn't come by name but by anything I say. It is easy to get him to talk to me. It is the tone of voice he responds to. If I call Rio he talks, if I call him sweety he talks to me. I call him old man all the time and he responds.
The simple sound of my truck or car pulling into the barn brings him running and talking, shaking his head and pacing the fence asking to be taken from the field.
Names mean nothing, tone of voice is more important.
