    Имя more for humans (or live, animated things, or unique ones), but with exclusions. When we use "имя" we consider this thing (or person) a bit animated or unique.
    Название - for inanimate objects, phenomenons, etc.
    Кличка - name for animals or "nickname" for people (sometimes offensive, sometimes not)
    Наименование - synonym for Название

    "имя" for people, "название" for things

    а ещё есть такие слова как "кличка" и "наименование"
