I am using Upverter to do my PCB design. Whenever I have 3 or more connections on a net, it shows me a warning saying that I need to explicitly name it.upverter net warning eg enter image description here

I would like to know if this is just a quirk of Upverter or it is some industry standard to name nets with 3 or more connections. In addition to that, is there an industry convention on how to name nets?

That naming requirement must be a quirk of Upverter. I haven't seen such a requirement in the CAD systems I've used (Protel, Altium, KiCAD), or seen any mention it in other systems.
