What is the naming convention of a standard IP address?

I am unclear about the specifics of what you require.

I do not believe there is any one naming convention.
There are 3 types of standard IP address ranges known as CLASSES.

This class is subnetted on the 2nd octet and below giving you the most
hosts and least networks.

This class is subnetted on the 3rd octet, giving you an average number
of networks and an average number of hosts.

CLASS C 00000000.00000000.00000000.XXXXXXXX
This network is subnetted on the 4th octet, it gives you the most
networks but only 254 hosts per subnet.

Does this answer your question?

In addition to CLASSES you can also have subnetting (taking host bits
for network addresses) and SUPERNETTING (where you take network bits
for hosts).

Supernetting is also known as Classless InterDomain Routing (CIDR).

Your question is a little vague.  But perhaps you mean what are the
standards regarding Internet naming - and these names are then
associated with IP addresses.  This is called DNS - Domain Name
Services.  Check out this overview:
