The name of a Tag will always be the name of the person it’s assigned to in the Nest app, but you can also add a custom label if you want. For example, if you have multiple Tags assigned to the same person, give each one a unique label to tell them apart.

Custom labels can help you keep track of your Tags. For example, the Nest app’s Security History will show you when different people used their Tags to arm or disarm throughout the day. If someone in your family has two Tags assigned to them, a custom label can show you which Tag they used each time.
