I have an I phone and several I pads. Why when I set a name under the apple Id section on one device, where the name first shows up in settings, does the name change to that on another device?

Only if you’re signed in with that Apple ID and password on the other device. Apple has no pre-set limit on the number of different Apple IDs you can have.

Device names are not tied to your Apple ID. You could call your devices Thing 1, Thing 2, and That D### Cat, and all of them will still happily use the same Apple ID.

The name Apple gives your device by default is just a placeholder.

You can change your device's name in Settings > General > About > Name
