This method is a convenience method for calling RegisterName. The implementation will check successive parent elements until it finds the applicable NameScope implementation, which is found by finding an element that implements INameScope. For more information about namescopes, see WPF Namescopes.
Calling RegisterName is necessary in order to correctly hook up animation storyboards for applications when created in code. This is because one of the key storyboard properties, TargetName, uses a runtime name lookup instead of being able to take a reference to a target element. This is true even if that element is accessible by reference from the code. For more information on why you need to register names for storyboard targets, see Animating with Storyboards Overview. Animations for content elements are less common than animations on controls, the Animating with Storyboards Overview concentrates on control scenarios.
