When I do a Erase all content and settings, it names the device as iPad. Then I cannot change it on the device or changing the name in Filewave DOES NOT change it on the device.

If the device is not supervised, then changing the name of the device in FileWave will not actually change the name of the device. If the device is Supervised, then if you change the name in FileWave, this will apply to the iOS device. If your devices are DEP enrolled, then you can utilize the auto-naming functionality (see screenshot). You can also deploy a config profile that prevents the end user from changing the device name (Disable device name modification - iOS 9+, Supervised - Restrictions payload).
