According to the schema, you can not assign a name to a physical volume in the GDML file, so that it has to be generated somehow.

In the current release an empty string is attached to the instantiated physvol class, but it is subject to change. I am considering including both the mother volume name and the referenced voulme name into the name:

   <volume name="Mother">
      <solidref .../>
      <materialref .../>
         <volumeref ref="Child"/>

In this case the physvol's name will be: "Child_in_Mother".

What dou you think abaout this idea?

Looking forward to your answer!
