I guess this way it keeps low memory profile.
IMO, this is irrelevant since we can track name of objects by using a document (i.e. a user manual) in large embedded software projects.

Assunto: Why object's name is so short?


RTEMS uses the object ID (rtems_id) for management of any objects.
Additionally, each object has a name that is used mainly for display to
the human. They both have a size of 4 bytes.

Why object's name (intended for the human) is so short?
