In the View Naming box, you can add Prefix, Suffix to your view name. The Middle is for  SpaceName and SpaceNumber with type-able spacing and if you want to omit SpaceName or SpaceNumber choose None from the dropdown list. And View Naming Preview is dynamically displaying the name of the views which are going to create. (see figure 1.2 & 1.3)
