Hi Deborah, 

In all cases, you can use reserved words if you put mysql `backtick` characters around them.  So if you run into issues in future you can specify the fieldname like this `name`.  However, in most cases it's unlikely you're going to need to change anything for a long time.  We're just moving towards making things as easy, simple, and universal for the majority of users.  

In the case of "name".  I google'd and it's only used in a very isolated case in mysql and typically should work as a column name without backticks or any special treatment, so I think we'll likely remove it from that list.  

What are the other reserved keywords that you often use as fieldnames?  I can take a look at those as well.
