Cloud shell shown project ID instead of name

When I select my project for the cloud shell, I see the project ID and not the project name as the insructor does.  I also see the id when the instructor asks us to type "gcloud config get-value project" but not the name.  Why is this?  Did I miss something?

I’m very glad you have your eyes wide open for things like this! You’re going to learn effectively if you keep this up. 🙂👍

The only thing you’ve missed is that the things that show up on my screen are also the project id, not the name.  I just happened to change the project id to something close to the name, when I created it.  My project ID has dashes whereas the project name includes spaces.
