    If you use the icons enough you get to know what they mean...

    If you see screen shots where there is a name under an item that probably is a Live Folder and has two or more apps bundled inside... Every time you create a folder you get to label it. Lumia Denim: using Live Folders on your Lumia - Lumia Conversations

    Additionally there are Tile Creator Apps in the Store which give you options of adding text to tiles. This is a popular example: Skinery Themes | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Welcome to Windows Central.

    Are you referring to the tiles in the Start Screen? If yes, try re-sizing the size of the tiles. This can be done by holding onto the tile until the rest of the screen dims out, and then tapping on the arrow that points down to the right - this will increase the size of the tile.

    The name of the app of the tile is not shown in the smallest tile size, but the other larger tile sizes show the app or tile name.

    Did you increase the tile size? There are app "titles" for the "Medium" and "Large" tiles, but not for the "Small" tiles.
