A manual page should start with a NAME section, which lists the program name and a brief description. The NAME section is used to generate a database that can be queried by commands like apropos and whatis. You are seeing this tag because lexgrog was unable to parse the NAME section.

Manual pages for multiple programs, functions, or files should list each separated by a comma and a space, followed by - and a common description.

Listed items may not contain any spaces. A manual page for a two-level command such as fs listacl must look like fs_listacl so the list is read correctly.
