Thanks for the report.  As suggested in Dante's reply, the blank line
following #+name is invalid syntax.

  https://orgmode.org/worg/dev/org-syntax.html#Affiliated_keywords

On maint (3bb073b63), the type error is now avoided for invalid name
keywords.  No attempt is made to match these keywords, though, so your
example won't lead to a match aside from through a fuzzy text search
when org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline is nil.
