Different places, different practices. In the rural areas near here, a
great many private service ways have names, so that the houses on them will
have street addresses for emergency services to find. Often the name is
something like 'Smith Road' because it goes into the Smith family farm.
It's just a highway=service or highway=track access=private, but is named
and signed for navigation.

I agree that a parking aisle or urban driveway is unlikely to have a name.
