Thanks for the answer. I didn't know about

Regarding using fully qualified and detailed names: I feel like it is
not a good idea for the use case I have with Org Mode. I have multiple
big Org files for each programming languages I've used and while using
long names might avoid name conflicts, there would be a time in which a
name conflict would occur because it is necessary to avoid using a name
which has already been used, so for example if I name a code block with
=generate-data-for-plotting=, I can't use that same name again.

For this reason, I was thinking in the following workaround: use use the
ID of the subtree as the prefix of the name of the code blocks. Thus,
name conflicts are less likely to occur (see example below).

#+begin_src org
,* DONE How to get the number of lines in a file?
  :ID:       ec1f7066-213c-458e-a0f9-786b722218f4

,#+NAME: ec1f7066-213c-458e-a0f9-786b722218f4/create-file
,#+begin_src dash :results silent
cat << EOF > main.txt

,* DONE How to print most repeated word in a file?
  :ID:       e0768c19-080f-47db-9dc2-3bd00efdd036

,#+NAME: e0768c19-080f-47db-9dc2-3bd00efdd036/create-file
,#+begin_src dash :results silent
cat << EOF > main.txt
fizz fizz fizz
buzz buzz buzz buzz
bar bar

As we can see above, both =dash= code blocks are given the name
=create-file= because both of them create a file but the ID of the
heading is used a the prefix in order to avoid a name conflict.

Let me know your thoughts on this workaround :)
