The Part Name column on the B/M is sometimes called simply "name" or "description" in commercial blueprints. In aerospace/military blueprints, this column is usually labeled "nomenclature" or "description". If the part has a blueprint number, the name will be the name or title of the blueprint(figure 1)
Figure 1
If the part number is a catalog number of manufacturers part, the name will usually be a brief form of the catalog description. (figure 2)
Figure 2
If the part is a commonly available standard item then the part number block may be left blank on the B/M, but the description block will contain information fully sufficient to describe it (figure 3)

If the part is a common item, such as a bolt, but needs to be higher quality than standard commercial grade, the description will also contain the specification.
