ArcGIS imposes a limit on the length of 16 characters on the length of attribute index names.  This limit is based on the smallest allowable length within supported databases in order to facilitate distribution and sharing of data between different geodatabases.

Giving a shapefile index a name will apply the name to the index in memory, but the name will not be persisted to disk. On subsequent occasions when the indexes are opened, they will have system-defined names.
