Is it possible to give names to the polylines in ArcGIS 10.3?

what is the name of the tool?

  • Can you provide additional details? Do you have these names in a table? Do you want to provide random name identifier?

There's no specific tool required. You need to have information in the attribute table of your polyline layer. This information will then be displayed should you configure the labeling options of the layer.

  • Where to find the attribute table ?

Right click on your layer and select open attribute table. If necessary, add a field and some data.

  • Where to find labeling options ?

Right click on your layer and select properties. In the lable tab, choose your data field and set up options if necessary.
