Cut list part names

I'm having a heck of a time getting the cut list to call out the correct part name.

 

I have a frame made from individual weldments, all one part.

 

I  renamed all the random weldment names to item numbers such as  "FT1",FT2" and so on, so when the parts are cut they can be marked as  such.

 

Solidworks renames these to random [ITEM NO.]  such as 1,2,3..
also when i change the weldment name it wont show up in the "cut list" on the item tree or even if i tag the weldment with a balloon.

 

If  i rename the "cut list " folder name to what the weldment name is it  wont allow it, so i change the weldment name only to have the weldment  cut list to bug out and not display the correct parameters such as an  angle cut turns to gibberish.

 

What gives!  How do i name components of a part and have it carry through to drawing space and cut list's.
