Yes. Auto-generated node names start with "Node id|". They are not very helpful for the intended purpose of a node name which is to help a friend to whom you are connected to identify that a particular connection belongs to you and not some other friend. Names are supposed to be, well, names! My node is called Toad/Dark, for example. The name is *only* visible to Friends, i.e. people you have manually exchanged noderefs with, people you know (whether or not you trust them), people you've talked to.
