I would like to have clarified the fact that what mean "name change"

IMHO, the *foundation* name and the *project* name do not have to be the same. Ubuntu is backed by Canonical... not the same name at all.

so why is the vote for? Name of the project? Name of the foundation?

In the context of the original discussion it was about "branding" and this vote is about dropping / replacing the openSUSE brand everywhere with something different. If the resault of the vote is "no cbange" then the board will try its hardest to use openSUSE in the foundation name unless we find that its not in the projects interest due to legal issues, then we will propose calling the foundation something else.
