As far as I know, multi-page PDFs only have page numbers, not page names.
The file itself has a name.

When publishing PDFs from Archicad the PDF file will take on the name of the item being published.
If it is published as a 'merged' PDF, then it will take on the name of the folder that was merged - but it will still be just page 1, 2, 3, etc.
If not merged, then each page will take on the name it has in the publisher list and will have just page 1.

So as far as I know you can change the name of the PDF file, but not the pages numbers.
Otherwise how do you tell the PDF to print pages 4 to 7?

You could probably create a contents page in the PDF, or maybe even save a sheet index from Archicad that might even allow hyper-links to each page (not 100% sure as I never use them), but still the pages will just have numbers.

If you do a web search you will find guidance on how to do this, but I think you have to do it with 3rd Party software (Acrobat). It isn't something that is usually a concern for most people, seems like you got the college graduate checking your plans.

Apparently you can modify the so-called Page Labels in Acrobat to achieve this.
I am guessing you would have to use the commercial Acrobat Pro software, as this functionality is not available in the free Acrobat Reader:

Correct. the Page names (Page labels) can indeed be altered.
I did get the college intern checking/reviewing plans where she can't find the sections page unless its labeled "A4-1 Sections"................some people.

and yes...you can ONLY alter the page labels INSIDE Adobe Acrobat PRO.....NOT the viewer.
