My understanding (having recently had a crack at getting an FDW working) is that the name can be arbitrary within reason - at least that's what I get from this bit of the documentation: > To do that, add TargetEntry items to parsetree->targetList, containing > expressions for the extra values to be fetched.

Avoid using names matching ctidN or > wholerowN, as the core system can generate junk columns of these names. http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.3/interactive/fdw-callbacks.html#FDW-CALLBACKS-UPDATE Someone more knowledgeable than myself will know better, I hope.
