A lot of Controls, if not all, have a property 'Name'. In Xaml when is it ok to use 'Name' and when is it necessary (or at least desirable) to use 'x:Name'?
Short answer: just use x:Name to remain consistent
it depends on the base class of the control. Some controls doesn't have the 'Name' property so they are named through 'x:Name' instead of 'Name'. I would recommend that you always use 'x:Name'.
