Short answer is to use Excel 365 desktop on Windows. All other versions (Excel for web, Excel on Mac, Excel mobile, etc) have limited functionality compare to it.
Excel for web is developed quite fast, perhaps this functionality will be available as well relatively in a short while.

Why is there no "Name Manager" (GESTIONE NOMI in Italian) in the Excel version for macOS on the FORMULAS tab?
On Windows, I can edit, delete cell names, on Mac it is not possible.

@lorenzocs Let's say I want to name the range A1:A20 "myNamedRange"
Step 1: Formula ribbon, Define Name
Step 2: Enter the name you want to use, click in the "Select the range......" field.
Step 3: Click on the "collapse"-button (far right in the "Select the range....." field) and select the range to be named (or directly write the reference of the range as indicated). Press OK.
Step 4: Select A1:A20. In the Name box, you can now see the name given to that specific range.
Step 5: In the Define Name window, you can now see the named range that you just created. Edit (change name and/reference) or Delete (the minus sign) or Create a new one (the plus sign).

The lack of any controls, event handlers and name management in 365 online all came as something of a shock to me. Any names present in a workbook ported from the pc desktop still work and names appear in the type script object model. It might therefore be possible to upload names/comments/&formulas from the grid to the workbook using the automate functionality. I have still to try this though.

@iamseb Don't. My original response is quite old. At the time (i.e. May 2021) Excel for the Mac did not have a Name Manager. But a few months ago it did show up in my MS365 subscription Excel version. and I'm an Insider as well. Not sure if it has been rolled out to all.
